Reels in the slow lane ~ your recommendations wanted…
Always interested in alternate ways with things, which I may or may not like ~ but I have enjoyed the occassional reel taken as a slow piece, just enjoying the full air of the melody. I’ll only mention one as I want this open ended and filled up by the recommendations of others, and whatever other carry on might be generated. A tune I learned from the composer, Paddy Bawn O’Brien, and one we carried regularly and gently in a lovely small and intimate session in Dublin ~
"Poor But Happy at 53" by Paddy Bawn O’Brien
Please make your recommendations, recordings of slow reels, you love or hate, and specific reel melodies you think work well in the slow lane, and even your suggestions as to the ‘how to’ of it, or not, and if you hate the whole process, well, here’s a place to let your feelings be known, good or bad.
As usual, someone else asked me and I thought it would be nice to bring it before you lot and see what transpires… ;-)
