Family Session Tunes January 2019


We had a great time at the December 2018 Family Session! Here’s a list of the tunes that we played, to the best of my memory. Feel free to drop the Irish Fest School of Music a note if I missed a tune or mixed up a set.


Jimmy Wards/Connachtman's Rambles (jigs)

We Won't Go Home 'Till Morning/Cuz's/Britches Full of Stitches - A major (polkas)

Humors of Tulla/Drowsy Maggie/Mountain Road (reels)

Off to California (G major)/Boys of Bluehill (D major) - (hornpipes)

Na Ceannabhain Bhana (G major)/A Fig for a Kiss (E minor)/The Butterfly (E minor) - (slip jigs)

Ballydesmond 2 (A minor)/Ballydesmond 1 (A minor) - (polkas)

Lilting Banshee (A minor)/Saddle the Pony (G major)/Humors of Glendart (D major) - (jigs)

Note: most of these link to the versions of tunes listed on thesession.org. Settings on thesession.org may or may not resemble settings played in the Family Session or your local session. When in doubt, ask to record at your session to capture the local versions, and (as always )- listen!
