Two comments

"The Sliabh Bloom March" C: Seán Ryan

A little nod of appreciation for bow master Seán Ryan, first simplified but based on his way with it, and then more of his way with it, raising the rhythmic interest in the way marches can and do. I’ll add something for the D-limited later. There are a lot of fine joyous dances that go well with a march like this. Also, this is for member gael northey ( https://thesession.org/members/84044 ) & her gang of bow swingers, "The Donegal Fiddlers’ Orchestra" of Norwood, Ontario, Canada:
