Ballynahoun

A fine old modal reel recorded by John Williams on his eponymous first solo recording. Middle tune in a set with The Beauty Spot and The Cashmere Shawl. I’ve tried to capture John’s basic setting here.

As Alan Ng points out, this is:

in Ddor instead of Edor, and with some liberties taken from Micho Russell’s version, which I presume is Williams’ source.
