The Lady on the Island (Reel) | Tunes From Doolin | Irish Traditional Music

Lady on the Island (The)

The Lady on the Island is a very common session tune. I first learned it from James Cullinan & PJ Crotty’s album “Happy to Meet”. It was also recorded by Dympna O’Sullivan on her beautiful CD “Bean chairdín” and by Hugh Healy and Blackie O’Connell.

The Harty Boys | Tunes From Doolin | Irish Traditional Music

Harty Boys (The)

I learned “The Harty Boys” from Hugh Healy and Blackie O’Connell’s album “We Were Drinking And Kissing The Ladies”. A very nice jig that is rather common in sessions.

Drag Her Round The Road

I learned “Drag Her Round The Road” from Hugh Healy & Blackie O’Connell’s duet album “We Were Drinking And Kissing The Ladies”. It is a great reel which I have enjoyed playing for many years now and never get tired of it!
