Glen Road To Carrick (The)

“The Glen Road To Carrick” is a great reel from Donegal which I learned from the playing of James Cullinan and Dermot Byrne. They played an amazing concert at the Corofin Trad Fest back in 2013, and I learned this tune afterwards. They actually recorded it a good few years ago (1987!) for a TG4 program, you can watch the video below!

One of my favourite reels! “The Concert Reel” is quite common in sessions around here but I remember learning this tune from Noel O’Donoghue (flute) and Kevin Finucane (fiddle) in particular, they played it a one of the Riches of Clare concerts a few years back. It is very often played after another great reel, “The Hare’s Paw”.
