Daisy Bell

This is a very fun little reel composed by multi-instrumentalist Martin Murray of Co. Waterford. In the liner notes to his CD A Dark Horse, he tells us: "Daisy Bell is the name of the ‘ghost’ who, according to my father, haunted out house in Carrick-On-Suir."
Best played when channeling the spirits of the Flanagan Bros.!

Also, this tune totally kick-starts Liz Doherty’s album, Last Orders, played with some major brio!!

Daisy Daisy?? tongue in cheek!

"Daisy Bell" is also the name of a very popular song from 1892 in waltz tempo. Many will know this from the refrain as "Daisy Daisy"

Must be sung whilst riding a bicycle.

Caps off a huge set Cape Breton style on Kimberley Fraser’s CD "Falling on New Ground". The set is titled "Flee as a Bird".
