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”).

It is very often played after another great reel, “The Hare’s Paw”.

“Stone of Destiny” is a beautiful reel composed by fiddle player Maurice Lennon (son of the great Ben Lennon from Leitrim, and nephew of the famous composer Charlie Lennon). I learned this tune from my friend JB, a great fiddle player from Britanny. Liam O’Brien, a wonderful concertina player from Miltown Malbay, recorded this tune on his album “The Lane”.
