Pat Lyons’

Another mighty reel from the great Tipperary fiddler Seán Ryan. The first part reminds me both of the Congress Reel and of Galway Bay, albeit for different reasons. I also love the treatment of natural and sharp Cs in the second part.

Re: Pat Lyons’

I should mention that the reel is named for Pat Lyons, the accordion player in the Seán Ryan trio, whose great playing can be heard on the "Back Home to the Cliffs of Moher" album.
