Lovely reel composed by Claire Watts, a fluter, fiddler, singer from Galway, now living in Knockliscrane, Miltown Malbay, Co Clare. She played it, along with Fergal Scahill for his day 300 tune-a-day, and Gerry Hegarty. The three of them blasting on fiddles.
I like it in G major on the flute, though on the concertina and the fiddle it’s fine in D.

I love it on the flute in G. No matter the key it’s a lovely reel and fun to play around with.
I haven’t met them but I’m happy to support their music: http://gerandclaire.com/
Re: Knockliscrane Cross
Thanks for posting this, and for the version in G. It’s a lovely, lively tune indeed. Amazing how much wonderful music is being composed in our own time, and this is one of the best.
