Michael Flatley’s

This reel comes from a recording of an American flute and whistle player who was invited to play on stage at the Flute and Whistle recital at the Willie Clancy week in 1986. I regret that I did not catch his name. It was only some years later when I was given a tape of Michael Flatley’s flute recording that I recognised the tune, and it is one of his compositions. The transcription from the Miltown recording was done by Malcolm Reavell, and I believe it to be accurate. I would say it is similar in style to the “Convenience” reel, in that it has a “modern” feel about it, jumping up and down between octaves, and including lots of “rolls”.

It sounds more like the "Concertina Reel" to me, Kenny.
