Some tunes from one of the Dunn Family Collection manuscripts here at the archives. Might be hard to make out, but the third tune is Captain Dunn’s Hornpipe, which some students from the @mkeirishfest School of Music have been learning. Great to hear this tune come to life again!⠀

Photo of the Jack Healy Orchestra – Jack Healy (far right) emigrated from Co. Sligo and played and recorded with Paddy Killoran in the 1930s. Besides playing saxophone in American dance bands, he had a lovely tenor voice and recorded a number of 78rpm discs under his own name. Jack was particularly known for singing the song “The Lakes of Sligo” – so much so that he was called Jack “The Lakes of Sligo” Healy!⠀
