Gan Ainm

A mighty reel for which I have no name. I learned it from this video ( starting at 5:05. The video was shared with us by the grandson of Sligo/New York fiddler Larry Redican. It’s from a practice tape of Larry and some other fiddlers and I’m not exactly sure who plays it here. I have heard that Andy McGann and Paddy Reynolds may have had it as well.

Anyway, a cracking tune and one of my current favourites to play on fiddle.

I decided to post a transposition up to A dorian. I just realized that this tune should go quite well in that key for any instrument – only the low B is unplayable on flute and whistle, and I’m sure there are workarounds for that issue, as well as for the triplets. Seems to me it would make a good session tune in this key if fluters and whistlers are around…
