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!

Hag at the Churn (The)

“The Hag at the Churn” is a jig that I associate with piper Paddy Keenan, who is a regular visitor to Doolin. He recorded it with The Bothy Band and also on his album with Tommy O’Sullivan “The Long Grazing Acre”. Josephine Marsh also recorded a very nice version of this tune on the album “To Meet A Friend” with Cyril O’Donoghue.
