This reel was well received at recent sessions. Our Bones/Bodhran player referred to the presentation as "Celtic funk," while our Flute player, a man of few words, freely declared, "That’s a good reel."
Last week we ran this one into Pigtown fling with favorable results. Yes, we planned ahead.
Thanks, again, to Jeremy, Glauber and Will for pointing me to the Concertina.com ABC converter.
You guys saved me a deal of time with this submission.
This one sounds very like the Boys of Ballinahinch
I like the rhythm of this one - it reminds me a bit of "The Little Bag Of Spuds" in G.
Mick O’Brien recorded a great version of this on his 1996 CD "May Morning Dew". If you don’t have it, get it, it is a beautiful CD.
Here is my take of Mick O’Brien’s version from his May Morning Dew album, which influenced the Mulchahey Family’s version, I think. It is slightly different, but pretty close to what Dicky Deegan plays under the name "Unknown Hornpipe" on his excellent An Phib recording.
