Longford Collector (The)

The Longford Collector is the second tune of one of Irish traditional music’s most famous sets of reels, from the playing of Michael Coleman : “The Tarbolton”, “The Longford Collector” and “The Sailor’s Bonnet”.

I learned this set through various sessions but associate it mostly with Noel O’Donoghue and Seán Vaughan.
