Lady on the Island (The)

The Lady on the Island is a very common session tune. I first learned it from James Cullinan & PJ Crotty’s album “Happy to Meet”. It was also recorded by Dympna O’Sullivan on her beautiful CD “Bean chairdín” and by Hugh Healy and Blackie O’Connell.

I recorded this tune as part of a set of reels in memory of Dympna O’Sullivan a few years ago, it’s the second tune in the video below.
