Anderson’s

“Anderson’s” is a very common session tune. I have known this reel for a very long time and learned it through sessions all over County Clare. The second part is sometimes played first, as on the legendary recording by Noel Hill and Tony Linnane. The version below is the most common setting in North Clare though.
