List of essential Irish session tunes. If you could only memorize an arbitrary number of tunes, let's say 20, which ones would you commit to memory based on how often they come up in sessions? Re: List of essential Irish session tunes. I' we tried to figure that out for years! I'd say it depends on where you live and differs down to who shows up at any given session at any given time.

I don't see the Copperplates old or new or the Foxhunter's slip jig -- I've played around and about and just about everywhere I've played they're familiar with both or all three, depending of those tunes.
