This reel was compsoed by Irish harmonica player Tom Clancy and has planted itself in the session repertoire. Commonly played in D, but you’ll hear mouth harp players (if you’re lucky) do it in C also.
Learnt it in C myself. Did he really compose it? I think it’s a version of The Bush in Bloom.
Re: Tom Clancy’s
Has Tom Clancys tune been posted on youtube as the midi version does no justice.
I am learning on a single row button acordion in G from a clip called Coyles single reel but mainly play harmonica and would be great to hear how it was played on a harmonica.
