Re: Charlie Lennon Compositions

The River Road Reel, not just a great reel but in my humble opinion one of the finest instrumental breaks in one of the finest songs; I love Mike Scott’s recounting of how it came about, having challenged Charlie Lennon, Frankie Gavin and another fiddler who I can’t recall, sorry, to come up with a tune/break for When You Go Away…. Charlie Lennon took some time walking around the garden of Spiddal House inspecting the plants and flowers, only to return to the studio and play this newly composed work of genius.
