I learned Miss Galvin’s Hornpipe through various sessions, it is usually played after “Poll Ha’Penny” around Doolin, as Mary Bergin recorded them on her legendary album Feadóga Stáin. “Miss Galvin’s” is associated with Ellen Galvin, a fiddle and concertina player from West Clare.
I recorded this hornpipe with my friend JB Samzun on fiddle on our album Aughavinna. You can order the album here if you would like to support Tunes From Doolin (thank you!).
Also feel free to check out the video below where I play the tune on its own.
