Dan Breen’s

“Dan Breen’s” is a reel I love playing very much. I learned it from a session with Yvonne Casey, Terry Bingham and Stéphane Germain. There’s a great version of this tune on the album “The Kilmore Fancy” by Catherine & John McEvoy as well.

Below is a video from a few years back, as I recorded this tune for a “30 Tune-a-day” challenge.
