Morrison’s Jig

Morrison’s Jig is a very common Irish session tune associated with the great fiddler James Morrison from Sligo, who emigrated to America in 1915. I associate this tune with my friend Adrian McMahon, a great flute player from Kilfenora who learned many tunes from Peader Reilly. Kevin Griffin, the great banjo player from Doolin, recorded this tune on the album Across The Pond with Roger Burridge (fiddle), Roger Shorrock (bouzouki) and Quentin Cooper (guitar and mandolin).

This tune was requested by Chris Alley on YouTube.

Hug The Bundle

I learned “Hug The Bundle” from uilleann piper Brian McNamara. He recorded this strathspey on his album “Fort of the Jewels”, which is one of my favourite piping albums. This tune has no connection with Doolin though and I never heard it anywhere. Still love it though!
