Mixed Blooms

This reel was composed/written down by my father, Martin Ruane, on 2 April 1964. It was recorded by Dad on a reel to reel tape at home, date unknown. I have submitted the written version. Will Harmon has been of great assistance in transcribing the recorded version which I hope to include here. I will also be making the recorded version soundclip available to members. If any member likes the tune and can record him/herself playing it, I would love to hear it. Regards, Mairtin

Well done Mairtin! Thank you for sharing this reel with us. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing the recording of your father and sussing out the different variations he gave the tune each time through. Great stuff, and a tune that invites variations.

Lovely! Looking forward to hearing the recordings…nicely done indeed, Mairtin.

OK, now I know.
