Hairpin Bend, The
This tune is named for a winding part of the road leading into Lisdoonvarna, County Clare. Try pedalling a bicycle up or down those hills! This single jig was very popular with The Kilfenora Céilí Band during my tenure with them. It is performed on this track by Geraldine Cotter on the whistle. Thanks for the memories, Geraldine. As they say in County Clare, 'keep the fire down, and keep pedalling'.
