Fairy Child

Declan Masterson’s reel from the CD, Drifting Through the Hazel Woods, he plays this on a Low F whistle. There are a few slides that don’t show up in the music but are written as "J" in the notation.

Jig not Reel

Sorry, with the help of advice from DetlefS, I’ve edited the tune to reflect a jig not a reel.
