Martin Wynne’s No. 1

I learned Martin Wynne’s No. 1 from the Riches of Clare CD back in 2010. It was part of a great set of reels played by Eric Healy (fiddle), Colm Healy (accordion), Kieran Hehir (banjo) and Seanie McGrath (bouzouki).

Martin Wynne was one of the great Sligo fiddlers of the 20th Century and this particular reel is quite a common session tune.
