Martin Wynne’s No. 1

I learned Martin Wynne’s No. 1 from the Riches of Clare CD back in 2010. It was part of a great set of reels played by Eric Healy (fiddle), Colm Healy (accordion), Kieran Hehir (banjo) and Seanie McGrath (bouzouki).

Martin Wynne was one of the great Sligo fiddlers of the 20th Century and this particular reel is quite a common session tune.

I first heard this tune on John Williams’ first album, on which he calls it “The Tidy Woman” and plays it more like a jig. It is more common as a slide though, under the name “Behind The Bush In The Garden”. I learned if from the Doon Ceili Band.

Old John’s

“Old John’s” has been one of my favourite jigs for many years. I learned it from a recording of Tommy Peoples and also associate it with Tony MacMahon, the great accordion player from Clare.
