Thread Name: Your unfavourite session tunes?
Subject: RE: Your unfavourite session tunes?
I certainly became heartily sick of the Boys of Bluehill/ Harvest Home set after having to play it several times a week for about 7 years.  Now that I don't do sessions so regularly, I've started to like it again, provided I can play it with a dotted rhythm almost strong enough to turn the Hornpipes into Strathspeys, but if somebody (usually a person who has only ever heard recent Irish versions) starts it off as a fast reel... well, I could cheerfully do murder.
