Green Groves of Erin (The)

“The Green Groves of Erin” is a very famous reel which I learned through various sessions. Micho Russell recorded a lovely version of this tune, however I really associate with The Bothy Band, their version on the album “After Hours” is truly remarkable and a classic set.
