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.

Lillies in the Field

I learned “Lillies in the Field” from Terry Bingham’s wonderful concertina album (he calls it “PJ Conlon’s on his album). It is a great reel which I have enjoyed playing for many years now and I also associate it with the playing of Tony MacMahon.

Master Crowley’s

Master Crowley’s is a reel I learned from Hugh Healy, a great concertina player from Corofin in Co. Clare. It is sometimes played with a third part which is actually the first part of “The Roscommon Reel” (also known as Master Crowley’s!), and I’ve even heard the two tunes play together as a 5-part reel.
