Willie Coleman’s

Willie Coleman’s is a very common jig. It was one of the first tunes I ever learned on tin whistle and was taught to me by my friend Tom Delany, a great piper now based in Dingle, Co. Kerry. I also associate “Willie Coleman’s” with the playing of the late Kitty Hayes’ in particular, who was a wonderful concertina player from Co. Clare.

Humours of Glendart (The)

“The Humours of Glendart” is a common session tune which I learned through various sessions. I associate this tune with the great accordion player from Lisdoonvarna Bobby Gardiner, who lives in Tipperary. It is always a great pleasure to see Bobby on his visits to North Clare and a pleasure to share tunes with him.
