Cornelius Curtin’s Big Balloon

This is a tune with a great name.

I'll tidy up this post tomorrow. I'm feeling too vague just now.

Today is now tomorrow and I'm fit to add that I heard this one on Paddy Carty's LP. It's named after "The Balloon" which was a pub in Fulham, London owned by Con Curtin from Kerry.


The Cloone

Here's a reel which can be found on a record of Tommy Peoples and Matt Molloy - all quite quick and E flattish as far as I remember.


John Doherty’s Reel

I can't write much about this tune due to my having an industrial strength hangover to wrestle with.  I recorded this tune yesterday, before I went out.  I recall feeling quite well then.
