Doolin is a very old hub of traditional Irish music.  A small village in County Clare, but you'll recognize many tunes from the area. 

Charles Monod was originally from Switzerland, but fell in love with Irish music, made Ireland his home and started his "Tunes From Doolin" project in 2011. 

Tunes From Doolin - Charles Monod's Personal Project

Charles plays concertina and has gathered music he plays from the area (played at a moderate pace) to share for others to learn - generously providing ABC notation and sheet music, too!

Great Videos like this: 

Journey to the West coast of Ireland for some of the best in Traditional Irish Music! Spirit of Doolin presents OAIM uilleann pipes tutor Tom Delaney and local musician, and co-founder of Spirit of Doolin, Charles Monod playing two reels they learned from Micho Russell. The first tune is called "The Mother And Child", also known as "The Yellow Cow", and the second is one of Micho's signature tunes, "The Boy In The Gap".


Then, there's the tunes to learn:

The tunes you will find on this website are a collection of Irish Traditional Music tunes I have learned over the years in Doolin, from various sessions, friends and some recordings too.

All the tunes are written in ABC format and come in sheet music format as well. I am also hoping to be able to record as many tunes as possible in the near future and to post them here as well as on the YouTube channel (feel free to subscribe to the channel here!).

Charles has a new tune book & CD available, also!
