Struck out again ! I was going to post a reel from the playing of Catherine McEvoy yesterday, but found that Gianmarco had beaten me to it. There was another reel Catherine played,and this is it. I would really like to know the origins of this tune, but no information has been provided. Any takers ?

Origin of Winding Hills…..

Great tune, Kenny- thanks. Great on flute or concertina, tricky on the fiddle. I believe this transcription came from Martin Mulvihill’s great collection of tunes. The only annotation for this one is “Brendan”- so I assume Martin got it from his son. The question remains - what was Brendan’s source for the tune?
