The Windy City

One of Charlie Lennon’s lesser known masterpieces. The man’s a genius! [ Transcribed for me by Malcolm Reavell.}

Love the tune but do you know of any recordings?

Recording

I think it came from a recording Charlie made with members of his family, title was “Dance Of The Honeybees” . I remember it for very good flute-playing by Brian Lennon. There’s a “follow-on" reel which is just as good, and I’ll post it tomorrow.
