Tommy Peoples’

Tommy Peoples’ is one of the first reels I ever learned. It is associated with the great fiddle player and composer Tommy Peoples, even though he didn’t actually write this particular tune. I also associate this tune with the playing of Kevin Crawford, who recorded is as the opening tune of his amazing album “In Good Company”.

I recorded this reel with my friend JB Samzun on fiddle on our album “Aughavinna”. You can order the album here if you would like to support Tunes From Doolin (thank you!).

John Kelly’s Concertina Reel

“John Kelly’s Concertina Reel” is great tune that I got from Denis Liddy at a session in McCarthy’s of Coore during the Willie Clancy Week back in 2014. I was familiar with this reel, associate with John Kelly Senior, through Tim Collins & Brian McNamara’s wonderful album “Reed Only”, and my good friend Tom Delany recorded it with concertina player Caroline Keane on their album “Never Say Good Bye, Say Good Luck” as well.
