Six comments

As played by Pierre Schryer and Dermot Byrne on their excellent collaboration. They follow it up with Pigeon on the Gate, but in G minor and with hardly any resemblance to the version posted here.

The Lane to the Glen

This is one of my favorite Reavy tunes. I learned it from Randal Bays and Joel Bernstein’s recording, "Pigtown Fling." Below are the ABCs for that setting.

Re: The Road To The Glen

For flute players try this in Eminor, Fits better
Aminor is well high and Gminor has a lot of Bb and Fnat.
