The Humours Of Ballingarry (jig)

I learned this tune off the recent debut album of Hugh and Colm Healy from Corofin, Clare. Also on Angelina Carberry and Martin Quinn’s duet recording. While Martin Quinn writes he found it in O’Neill’s, Healy brothers don’t mention the source of the tune. Anyway, you can see them playing this tune: http://www.custysmusic.com/mall/CustysTraditionalMusicShop/hugh_and_colm_healy.htm

Mmm, Ballingarry, Balingarry, Ballingary, or Balingary?

James Kelly’s version

Here’s my take on how James Kelly plays it, but moved up to G.

Heard Dylan Foley play James Kelly’s setting at a house concert last night. Quite lovely indeed!
