Master Crowley’s

Master Crowley’s is a reel I learned from Hugh Healy, a great concertina player from Corofin in Co. Clare. It is sometimes played with a third part which is actually the first part of “The Roscommon Reel” (also known as Master Crowley’s!), and I’ve even heard the two tunes play together as a 5-part reel.

I remember hearing Cormac Begley playing these two reels together at the concertina recital during Willie Clancy week in Miltown Malbay, and there’s actually a video of his performace on Youtube, have a look below!
