Trip We Took Over The Mountain (The)

I learned this beautiful waltz from Eugene Lambe, a great piper and whistle player who did a huge amount of work recording the older musicians of North Clare back in the early 90s. Eugene learned “The Trip We Took Over The Mountain” from the playing of Micho Russell.

I had the opportunity to spend time with Eugene Lambe and learn tunes from him directly thanks to the support of Clare County Council through the Clare Local Area Grant Scheme 2023.

Random Tunes

Killarney Boys of Pleasure (The)

I learned “The Killarney Boys of Pleasure” a good few years back on the tin whistle from my good friend Johannes Perritaz, a great flute player from Switzerland. This reel is quite common in sessions around Clare.

Behind The Bush In The Garden

I first heard this tune on John Williams’ first album, on which he calls it “The Tidy Woman” and plays it more like a jig. It is more common as a slide though, under the name “Behind The Bush In The Garden”. I learned if from the Doon Ceili Band.

Jim Coleman’s

“Jim Coleman’s Reel” is not a tune I have heard very often. I learned it from James Kelly, Paddy O’Brien & Daithi Sproule on their album “Traditional Music of Ireland”. Seamus Tansey also recorded a nice version of this reel.
