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”

:-)

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
