Old Micky McKiernan’s

From the "Missing Reel" recording by Jack Lee and Seamus Maguire.

Thanks for posting this, Kenny, I’ve been listening to that recording again recently. But you might want to revise your ABCs slightly; the A-part seems too big.

Seems fine to me Button!

No reel is too big for a man who can blow like Kenny!

That’s because he already removed the repeat fromt the end of the A-part that made it 32 bars instead of the normal 16 bars. He just didn’t comment about it after editing it.

Wisnae me…………

See what you mean , Jack. Sorry about that. I suspect thanks are due to Jeremy for the correction. I’ ll try to post some more tunes from that recording in the next week or so.

Give Us Another

Jesse Smith and Colm Gannon play this reel as "Give Us Another" citing the old recording of Mayo fiddler John McFadden as the source. Watch them play it together: http://youtu.be/AxHjNxs21M0

The Braes of Auchtertyre

Fermanagh as "The Braes of Auchintyre", in the Francis Reynolds MS c.1885 of Gaigue, Ballinamuck, Co. Longford as "Miss Mulligan’s Reel" and in the American fiddle tradition as "Billy on the Low Ground".
