Green Gowned Lass (The)

“The Green Gowned Lass” is a reel I learned from Mary MacNamara and her brother Andrew MacNamara. Their album “Open Hearth” is one of my favourite albums ever. This particular tune is the second of a set I have enjoyed playing with my friend Stéphane for many years. The first reel in that set is “Joe Bane’s”.
