Rolling Wave (The)

The Rolling Wave (or Rolling Waves) 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.

“The Rolling Wave” is also the opening tune of the movie “The Boys & Girl From County Clare”, which is a classic if you are into Irish Music 😉

It comes after another reel called “The Pride Of Rathmore”. They are also played together sometimes, but as a three part reel (“The Pride Of Rathmore” followed by the first part of “The Girls Of Farranfore”).
