Reels from Maurice Lennon’s Brian Boru, The High King of Tara

This is the first of two reels in the Gathering of the Dal GCais segment of Maurice’s suite. I’ll be posting the second tune in the set soon.
We played these tunes with Maurice a couple of weeks ago, and he was happy to have them up on thesession.org for folks to play.

Here’s a version I posted before realizing that it was already up here. I learned it from Maurice too, at the Meitheal Summer School.

See Joe, *this* is a good tune. Wizard’s Walk is *not* a good tune.

Shuddup, Dow. Wizard’s Walk is good and you know it.
You’re just too scared to admit it, aren’t you?
