Pipe On The Hob (The)

The Pipe On The Hob is a very old tune that is quite common in sessions around Doolin. I associate this jig with Christy Barry and James Devitt, but I think I first learned it from a recording of Gavin Whelan, the great whistle player from Dublin.

There is another jig called “The Pipe On The Hob” (but it is in A minor) which is also quite popular. I’ll post it soon!

I learned “The New Mown Meadow” from the playing of Terry Bingham. It is a great reel that suits C#/D accordion players very well in particular and it is also quite common to hear this tune in A minor.

Hold The Reins

I learned “Hold The Reins” from a session recording I made of a nice evening in Hotel Doolin back in 2008 with my friend Stéphane, Yvonne Casey and Terry Bingham. It was also recorded by accordion and concertina player from Chicago John Williams, who has spent a lot of time in Doolin over the years. It is also called “The Dublin Lads”.
