Composed by John McSherry. Great tune! :-)

I think he plays it in Emin on his album, "Soma".

It’s also on KAN’s album "Sleeper", followed by the Queen of Rangoon (the reel in the Brian & Ed video above), but up a step in Cmin! Here it is in Bmin as per the original setting.

the other tunes?

Can someone name the other tunes in the John McSherry/Donal O’Connor video?

Other tunes…

In reply to the above : I think it’s Track #7 here :

The middle tune is an "O’Keeffe’s" slide, but the link is going to a different tune.
