Martin Hardiman’s

Grainne Hambly claims that the title "Martin Hardiman’s" originated from Joe Derrane’s mentor Jerry O’Brien in her liner notes. She plays an interesting version of this in A minor:

Er, I mean, how I hear it played, slightly differently than what Gian Marco heard, apparently.

It’s beautiful….

This tune can also be heard here:

Played powerfully by Conor Keane and Martin O’Malley.

Can anyone say what key it’s played in here?

Aka Hag’s Purse

Hag’s Purse - has that name on Catherine McEvoy’s eponymous CD, also Custy’s Leabhar Ceoil tune book.

What a beautiful tune. It’s really got that quality of longing and emotion you hear in other jigs "Out on the Ocean".

Joe Derrane’s

It really is more in D than Bm to my ear. That opening chord is a G.
