Charlie Harris’ Reel #1

“Charlie Harris’ Reel No. 1” is part of a set that I learned at a great session in Cooley’s Pub, in Ennistymon, with Stéphane, Adam Shapiro, Paul Dooley and a few others. It is played with another reel and they’re known together as “Charlie Harris’ Reels” and were recorded by De Dannan.
This reel also goes by the names “John Blessing’s” and “O’Connell’s Reel”, which is the oldest name I could find. I’ve decided to publish it as “Charlie Harris'” since it seems to be the most common name in the area. To listen to the tune, please watch the video below.
