Come West Along The Road

Another great classic, “Come West Along The Road” is one of those tune I love to play in big sessions. I don’t remember exactly when I learned this reel, but I associate it the amazing album “I gCnoc na Graí” by Noel Hill & Tony MacMahon.

A recorded this tune when I was doing my 30 Tune-A-Day challenge back in 2015, have a look at the video below (the tune that follows it is “The Old Pinch Of Snuff”).
