Tommy Coen’s

This reel as taught by Patrick Ourceau at the East Coast Tionol fiddle workshop on 2 Oct 05 in East Durham, NY. Played a bit slower than normal dance tempo.

Patrick refers to this as “Tommy Coen’s No. 2”

:-)

This one was wrtiien by Tommy Coen.

Sean Ryan’s

This reel comes from Danu’s "When All is Said and Done" cd. They call it Sean Ryan’s, but cite it as "traditional." Sounds Scottish to me, and in the family of tunes that includes Bunch of Keys, Paddy on the Turnpike, Fairhaired Molly, etc.

Danu plays this one at a moderate, deliberate pace.

I didn’t see it on a quick look through the two Sean Ryan tunebooks. Google found it at
http://www.ibiblio.org/fiddlers/SEA.htm
with a few small differences in the B part (the link to Moher is outdated):

Tommy Coen’s - alternate A part setting

Just got the Red Wellies CD and they play this tune a bit differently. First they play it straight up GDor all F naturals and B flats.

Best thing is this juicy variation on the a part the last time through.

N: from the red wellies - optional A setting

Tommy Coen’s has me hearing Cottage in the Grove,,,

Tommy Coen’s No. 2

I’m starting to go through some Sean Ryan recordings and I came across the track from the solo recordings he made in his kitchen - CD1 Tr2 - Tommy Coen’s Reels. I figured out that the first tune is Crosses of Annagh but the second tune I could not find here or on Anytune or anywhere else. It seems familiar and I won’t be surprised if this is a duplicate that I missed. If so, I apologize in advance.
