This was played by a flute/whistle player from the USA at the Willie Clancy week flute and whistle recital in 1986. Never did find out who he was, although we were in the same flute class.
A good player, who chose some very good tunes. This is possibly a Highland rather than a reel, because he paired it with what I’ve only recently discovered is one of 6 highlands composed by Ed Reavy. A nice simple tune. Anyone heard it before ?
A twist on Within a Mile of Dublin, eh?
Kenny, it’s called the Lovely Bannion. Check out online tune indexes for details.
Good man, Dow. I did wonder if it was another Reavy tune, even though it seems it might not be one of his actual compositions. And it is a Highland, not a reel.
