By Liz Carroll, on her album with John Doyle, "In Play", track 11.
This tune is special to us here in San Diego. Ashleigh Roach was a young Irish dancer who lost her life in the devastating wildfires that ravaged San Diego in 2003. When Liz learned of the tragedy, she wrote and named this reel in honor of Ashleigh. Last November, when Liz and John performed here, they played this tune to a packed audience, with Ashleigh’s family in the front row. A moving experience.
