Another James Byrne Classic

The Reel of Sparks from "Road to Glenlough". Rough bow markings included. You really can hear the sparks fly on this one, although one of the many things I admire about James Byrne is that nothing ever seems rushed. May his music live on.

Thanks

Yes, O’Neill’s "Dance Music of Ireland" #804. Thanks. James’ style helps give this a distinct flavor, compared say to the Solas rendition.
