Maids of Mount Kisco (The)

The Maids of Mount Kisco (often spelled “Mount Cisco”) is a very popular session tune. Mount Kisco is actually a place in New York State. I have learned this great reel through various sessions and associate it with the playing of two great ladies in particular, Kitty Hayes and Elizabeth Crotty.

I recorded a video of this tune back in November 2015, there are a good few mistakes in it but you can have a listen below. I’ll try to upload a new video soon!
