learned from Breandán Breathnach (CRE I No 183), might not be exactly that version anymore after the years

X:2 Leitrim Reel

From a homemade acetate recording, made in NYC in the 1950s. This was from a batch of such discs, cut by anonymous musicians from Sligo and Leitrim, judging by their style and repertoire. Some discs did ID who was playing, including Paddy Killoran and Jim MacGowan.

Leitrim, X:4

This is a transcription (or approcimation of) the version played by Teada- as seen in the video above. To be played with plenty of rolls in the A section!
