Frankie, I miss you.
does anyone know what reel comes after this one in Altan’s "the cat that ate the candle" medley? It’s not listed anywhere…so if anyone recognizes it…
"Dandy Denny Cronin" ?
Frankie Kennedy actually plays 3 reels on the track, and I think this is the middle one. The real "Over the Water to Bessie" is probably the one posted by Kenny: https://thesession.org/tunes/2832
This belongs in the ‘Highland fling’ family of tunes that comes under varied guises/names: The Little Pack of Tailors, the Wind that Shakes the Barley, etc
the kinship is most obvious here in part 2.
