Tap Room Trio

Harry Bradley, Jessie Smith & John Blake gave us an album we can all be proud of. This album has it all, great settings, great playing & it just sounds like they had a ball recording it. The Killarney Wonder is a tune I’ve heard a 1000 times but they give a a new life. They have a touching setting of The sailor on the rock & dug up a great seeting of Sligo Maid that sent me running to see if they gave Danny O’Donnell his due (they did). If you buy only one album this year you won’t be bad off if it’s this one, it’s an instant classic.

I thought Mick O’Brien and Caoimh

Tap Room Trio, track 3: The Pullet

Anyone have a different name for the tune rendered by the Tap Room Trio and listed on the sleeve as "the Pullet"?

Marvellous stuff. A lovely style altogether. Great selection of tunes. I’m a big fan of Harry’s solo albums and this trio showcases his great ability to play with other musicians and really add to a duet or trio.

The Pullet on track 3 is the tune which links from the recordings section. I’ve only ever heard it called The Pullet. Though it is similar in a few bars to another tune called Brendan McMahon’s or Coffey’s Reel, found here:
