Young Tom Ennis

I learned “Young Tom Ennis” from a session in McGann’s Pub with Yvonne Casey and Terry Bingham. This jig was recorded on the wonderful album “In Good Company” by Kevin Crawford, on which he plays this particular tune with James Cullinan, the great fiddle player who lives in Doolin also. They follow “Young Tom Ennis” with another lovely jig called “The Mouse in the Mug” and it is quite a common set around Doolin now, which I enjoy playing with my friend Adrian McMahon, a flute player from Kilfenora.
