Rights of Man (The)

I learned The rights of Man during my very first summer in Ireland, back in 2006, on the tin whistle. It is my friend Stéphane who got me started, and I am ever so grateful for all the advice and tips he gave me, especially around his respectful approach to traditional music. I also associate this tune with the great album “Fire Aflame” by Matt Molloy, Seán Keane and the late Liam O’Flynn. Liam O’Brien, the great concertina player from Miltown Malbay, also recorded it on his album “The Lane”.

Maid Behind The Bar (The)

The Maid Behind The Bar is one of the most common reel in Irish Music, but I have to admit we don’t hear it in Doolin very often. I learned it from Chris Droney, the legendary concertina player from Bell Harbour, Co. Clare.
