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”.

This is the second tune of the Charlie Harris’ set which I learned from Stéphane, Adam Shapiro & Paul Dooley at a session in Cooley’s Pub (Ennistymon). “Charlie Harris’ Reel No.2” is also called “The Burren” or “Michael Cramer’s Reel”, but I’m not too sure about the original title.
