Wrong link #1

"Paddy Canny’s" - track 1, first reel links to a Paddy Canny jig.
The tune played is "The Cottage In The Grove", similar to this :

Re: An Fhidil

On track N° 5 played by Seamus Thompson.
the first tune is not a Paddy Fahey’s reel but a reel composed by Sean Ryan named "Bill McEvoy N°1"
the second tune is one composed By Paddy Fahey, "reel N°15"

Re: An Fhidil

Oops, I have made a mistake : the second tune played on track 5 is Paddy Fahey’s reel N°2
