The Lightening Flash (reel)
A simple reel from the pipes and fiddle duet playing of Emmet Gill and Jesse Smith. They cite an RTE recording of piper Leo Rowsome as the source.
Are you sure about “Lightening”?
More likely "Lightning" as someone has added to the alternate titles. Different words, they be. And, a mistake I’ve been know to make once or twice! 🙂
Of course it should be "Lightning", as it was in "O’Neill’s" over 100 years ago. What the feck’s a "Lightening Flash" ?
If you put a certain brand of floor cleaner in your washing machine, it lightens your coloured garments.
… but did they have it in the Chicago in 1907 ? 🙂
I’m sure Molly Weir was about then.
It’s fixed now. Thank you for enlightening me!
Don’t you mean…
Just kidding! 🙂
A different title
As with so many of the tunes she includes in her 2004 tune book A Drop in the Ocean, Josephine Keegan has her own title for this tune, calling it The Piper In The Glen.
