1. The Boogie

I heard Martin's album "Smoke and Mirrors" and one of the songs started with a riff that I thought would sound very good with the tune Dinny O'Brien.

Martin Simpson: Guitar
Theo Paige: Fiddles, Bodhrán, Harmonica

Boogie music clip: .wav

2. Jigs: The Humours of Ballyloughlin/Paddy Fahy's

When Séamus came down to record, these are the tunes we came up with as soon as we got to the studio. The first jig is a piping classic and was popularized by Willie Clancy and Séamus Ennis in the 1950s and later by Liam O'Flynn in the 1970's.

Séamus Egan: Banjo (from Offaly, Ireland, not the Solas Egan)
Theo Paige: Fiddle
Steve Baughman: Guitar
Todd Denman: Uilleann Pipes
Lucas Levitsky: Flute

3. Reels: Major Harrison's Fedora/The Virginia Reel

I got the first tune from Lucas and the second tune from Laurie Riven. Martin got the tune that goes with it out of his head.

Martin Simpson: Guitar
Theo Paige: Fiddle, Bodhrán, 2nd Guitar

12. Reels: Montgomery's Rant/The Petticoat Loop/The Belles of Tipperary/The Man from Bundoran/Cunningham's Fancy

I learned the first two from James Kelly and the rest I learned from the playing of Kevin Burke and from Séamus Egan.

Theo Paige: Fiddle, Guitar
