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!).

“The Green Groves of Erin” is a very famous reel which I learned through various sessions. Micho Russell recorded a lovely version of this tune, however I really associate with The Bothy Band, their version on the album “After Hours” is truly remarkable and a classic set.
