Boy on the Mountain Top

Here’s a single reel I lifted from Harry Bradley’s "Bad Turns…." album. I like it because most Adorian tunes have similar structures but this one seems to break away from your average ADorian tune, while still sounding very traditional.

this is an awesome tune - they play it loads in galway
