Humours of Ballyhaunis
The 'goings on' or happy and fun times in Ballyhaunis, County Mayo, give this slip jig its name. I first heard the tune played by the talented musical Quinn family from New York. A version of the tune may be found in O'Neill's great collection of Irish music. A tune well worth playing and worth its weight in gold: on this track performed for us by Shannon Heaton.
