The Templehouse (Reel) | Tunes From Doolin | Irish Traditional Music

Templehouse (The)

The Templehouse is one of my favourite reels. I learned it from the legendary album “I gCnoc na Graí” by Noel Hill & Tony MacMahon, it is part of the first set and follows another great reel, “The Humours of Castlefin“.

Last Night's Fun (Reel) | Tunes From Doolin | Irish Traditional Music

Last Night’s Fun

One the great session reels, “Last Night’s Fun” is a tune I have learned through different sessions over the years. I associate it with Mary Bergin in particular, as I have always loved her version on “Feadóga stáin”. Noel Hill also recorded it on “The Irish Concertina”.

The Ladies' Pantalettes (Reel) | Tunes From Doolin | Irish Traditional Music

Ladies’ Pantalettes (The)

I don’t remember when I learned The Ladies’ Pantalettes, but it is a very common session tune. I associate this reel with concertina maestro Noel Hill, who plays this tune in one of my favourite concertina videos ever.

The Humours of Castlefin | Tunes From Doolin | Irish Traditional Music

Humours of Castlefin (The)

I learned “The Humours of Castlefin” during the Russell Memorial Weekend 2013, from Terry Bingham. It is one of my favourite tunes and I associate with Noel Hill and Tony MacMahon, who recorded it on their album “I gCnoc Na Graí”.

The Drunken Landlady | Tunes From Doolin | Irish Traditional Music

Drunken Landlady (The)

This is a common session which I love very much. I learned “The Drunken Landlady” through various sessions, but it’s really a tune that I associate with the amazing duet album of Noel Hill & Tony Linnane.

Come West Along The Road | Tunes From Doolin | Irish Traditional Music

Come West Along The Road

Another great classic, “Come West Along The Road” is one of those tune I love to play in big sessions. I don’t remember exactly when I learned this reel, but I associate it the amazing album “I gCnoc na Graí” by Noel Hill & Tony MacMahon.
