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!

Kilmovee Jig (The)

The Kilmovee Jig is a common session tune which I associate with my friend Dom Keogh, a great bodhran player from that area in County Mayo. I lived with Dom for a few month here in Doolin, and it was always one of his favourites. It has been recorded on a few CDs, including a nice version by Mary & Gary Shannon on the “Sanctuary Sessions” CD from Cruise’s pub in Ennis. Gavin Whelan also recorded a nice version.

“The Rolling Wave” is a jig I associate with Tony MacMahon, the great box player from Clare. He recorded it on the album “MacMahon From Clare” but it was also released on the live album with Steve Cooney more recently.
