Could you tell me the name of these tunes?

Re: Could you tell me the name of these tunes?

You could ask Orla herself - she is a member here, occasionally posting under the name “flutes and boots”. They may be her own compositions, but I’m not sure about that.

Thanks to both of you! I’ve finally identified the 1st one, it’s called The Premier reel, composed by Paddy O’Brien https://thesession.org/tunes/8164.
Still curious about the second one though, if I don’t get any answer here I’ll ask Orlaith 🙂

Re: Could you tell me the name of these tunes?

Ee, b*gg*r me - 2 things in defence, m’lud.
1 - I’ve never heard that tune played by anyone, anywhere, since I posted it here, and I do forget tunes if I’m not hearing them or playing them regularly, as is obviously the case here. I’m delighted to hear Orlaith has resurrected it and hope it becomes more popular as a result of that video [ and this discussion ].
2 - Orlaith and Brogan’s style of playing it is fairly far removed from composer Paddy O’Donoghue’s original way with it, and I don’t think I would have made the connection. I’m just glad I didn’t waste time transcribing it and posting it here again. 🙂
