Great reel. Has been associated a lot with the Galway Rambler but is also frequently played after St Anne’s. At our session we go for the latter.

London Lasses

A "fundamental" tune for flute players . Never played better than by Conal O’Grada ( after the "Galway Rambler" - as Bannerman suggests).

There’s a very different version on Kevin Burke & Jackie Daly’s album:

Hatao’s Version

I picked up this version from video a Japanese tin whistler called Hatao uploaded on Youtube, I don’t know if it’s original of his or not. Anyway, I’ve been using the notations listed here for a long time and I wanted to give something back:
