One That Was Lost (The)

The One That Was Lost is a jig I have known for a long time and is one of my favourite tunes. It is a composition of the great Paddy O’Brien from Tipperary and quite a common session tune. I associate “The One That Was Lost” with my friend Stéphane, as it is one of our regular jigs on our Sunday afternoon session at Gus O’Connor’s Pub. We usually play “Pull The Knife And Stick It In Again” after it and finish our set with “The Bush On The Hill”.

I learned “The Fairhaired Boy” from my friend Johannes in Switzerland, a great flute player. This is also a jig I associate with Charlie Piggott (accordion), who recorded on the album “The Lonely Stranded Band” with Miriam Collins (concertina) and Joe Corcoran (bouzouki).

Imelda Roland’s

“Imelda Roland’s” is without a doubt one of my favourite reels. I learned if from the playing of concertina player Claire Keville, who recorded it on the album “An Trí is a Rian” with John Weir and Eithne Ní Dhonaile. In the sleeve notes of the album, Claire explains that she was told by Imelda Roland’s daughter that her mother used to lilt this tune while boiling potatoes for the pigs. The tune was picked up and made popular later by Joe Cooley and her brother Raymond Roland.

I learned “Young Tom Ennis” from a session in McGann’s Pub with Yvonne Casey and Terry Bingham. This jig was recorded on the wonderful album “In Good Company” by Kevin Crawford, on which he plays this particular tune with James Cullinan, the great fiddle player who lives in Doolin also.
