Packie Duignan’s

This fine reel, presumably from the repertoire of the great Co.Leitrim flute player, follows on from “Mick O’Connor’s” on the Charlie Lennon & family recording “Dance Of The Honeybees”. Again transcribed by Malcolm Reavell, “tweaked” by me.
“Mick O’Connor’s” is here :

Not trad…………..

I’ve always been of the opinion that the mark of a good “recently- composed” tune is that it sounds a hundred years old, and that has been the case apparently with 2 tunes I’ve posted, thinking them traditional, with an unknown composer, when in fact they’re not. I finally managed to get hold of “Dance Of The Honey Bees”, by Charlie Lennon and his family. It seems that the 2 reels named “Mick O’Connor’s” and “Packie Duignan’s” are in fact both compositions by Charlie, in tribute to 2 great flute-players. I am only too happy to set the record straight, but am a bit surprised that no-one pointed this out. Looks like this CD hasn’t sold many copies among the “Session” fraternity, which is a shame, but maybe it’s not too well-known.
