Jim Coleman’s

“Jim Coleman’s Reel” is not a tune I have heard very often. I learned it from James Kelly, Paddy O’Brien & Daithi Sproule on their album “Traditional Music of Ireland”. Seamus Tansey also recorded a nice version of this reel.

There are a few different versions of this tune, but this is the one I got from Thierry, which was also recorded by Paddy Murphy, the legendary concertina player from Fiach Roe, Co. Clare. Another great recording of this lovely jig can also be found on Dan Gurney’s album.
