Sean Quinn’s

I composed this tune in 1963 on the piano accordion. I broadcast it from Radio Éireann on the “Céilí House” programme with my Blackthorn Céilí Band in 1965, in a set with my other composition “The High King” reel (qv). I like it particularly for the C naturals in the second part. Over the years, I forgot this tune and about 30 years later, in trying to recall it, I created a similar but not identical, three-part reel in the same key, which I also called “Sean Quinn’s Reel”. Some time after that, a friend lent me an old tape recording of the original broadcast and I was able to recover the original tune, so now I call them Sean Quinn’s #1 and Sean Quinn’s #2. I hope to later post the second tune for comparison.
