“Larry’s Favourite” is a composition of Paddy O’Brien from Tipperary. I first learned this reel from my friend Johannes Perritaz, a great flute player from Switzerland. I hadn’t played it for a very long time though but was reminded of it by the amazing concertina player Tony O’Connell, with whom I was lucky enough to spend a day during my time at the Irish World Academy in Limerick.
I also associate this tune with Siobhan Peoples and Murty Ryan, who recorded it on their album “Time on our Hands”.
