Stacy Essential Irish Session Tunes (44) RE: Essential Irish Session Tunes 08 Aug 98

Jon W., I, also, have never sat in on an authentic Irish session. I do however gather with a group of friends and we play music (some Irish) for our own fun and for some special occasions. This has been an interesting thread to me.

Does anyone include any of these in their sessions?:

Banish Misfortune; Galopede; Hag at the Churn; Old Hag at the Kiln; Sheebeg and Sheemore; Fanny Power; Give Me Your Hand; Smash the Windows; Dancing Master; Liberty; Sleep Soond in da Mornin; Juice of Barley; Have a Drink With Me; Kesh Jig; Morrison's Jig; Morpeth Rant; Rakes of Kildare; Hewlett; Halting March; Coleraine; Connaughtman's Rambles; After the Battle of Aughrim; Off to California; Rights of Man; Ducks on a Pond; Kitchen Girl; Over the Waterfall; Angeline the Baker; Staten Island Hornpipe; Pigeon on a Gate; Red Haired Boy; Petronella; Scully's Reel; Brian O'Lynn; Farewell to Whiskey.

What about songs? No one has listed songs commonly heard at Irish sessions. How about it?
