Lillies in the Field

I learned “Lillies in the Field” from Terry Bingham’s wonderful concertina album (he calls it “PJ Conlon’s on his album). It is a great reel which I have enjoyed playing for many years now and I also associate it with the playing of Tony MacMahon.

This reel was actually one of the first tunes I recorded on my YouTube channel back in 2015. Watch the video below!
