Maid in the Meadow (The)

I learned The Maid in the Meadow from Yvonne Casey’s first album. It is a great tune that you hear a good bit in sessions in the area. This reel is also sometimes called “The Dream of Home”, as collected by Breandán Breathnach. Kevin Crawford recorded this tune as well, on “D Flute Album”.
