Cronin’s Hornpipe

“Cronin’s Hornpipe” is a popular tune that I learned from Terry Bingham. I also associate this tune with my good friend Adrian McMahon, a great flute player from Kilfenora. Adrian likes to play it after “The Rights of Men”, which makes a really nice change.

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.
