Green Moutain (The)

I learned “The Green Mountain” from Kevin Griffin, the great banjo player from Doolin. He recorded this reel on the album “Live at The Burren Centre, Kilfenora”, which was a live recording of one of the Riches of Clare’s concerts.

I also associate this tune with Adrian McMahon, flute player from Kilfenora. It is one of his favourites and he likes to follow it with “The Trip To Birmingham”.
