Matt Peoples’

Matt Peoples’ is a great session tune that I learned from Noel O’Donoghue, Hugh Healy & Sean Vaughan. It is the second tune on the famous opening track of the fantastic album recorded by Tommy Peoples, Matt Molloy and Paul Brady.

My good friend Caroline Keane also recorded an amazing version of this reel on her album Shine, a must-have in any concertina player’s collection. You can check out her website here
