Larry’s Favourite

“Larry’s Favourite” is a composition of Paddy O’Brien from Tipperary. I learned this great reel from my friend Johannes Perritaz, a great flute player from Switzerland. I also associate this tune with Siobhan Peoples and Murty Ryan, who recorded it on their album “Time on our Hands”.
