Don’t Touch That Green Linnet

“Don’t Touch That Green Linnet” is a composition of the late Tommy Peoples, the fiddle player from Donegal who lived in County Clare for many years and influenced many great fiddles players. Tommy’s tunes are all remarkable and I particularly like this one.

Below is a video I recorded back in 2015 as part of a 30 “tune-a-day” challenge.

I was familiar with this reel, associate with John Kelly Senior, through Tim Collins & Brian McNamara’s wonderful album “Reed Only”, and my good friend Tom Delany recorded it with concertina player Caroline Keane on their album “Never Say Good Bye, Say Good Luck” as well.
