Mother And Child (The)

“The Mother And Child” is a reel I learned from the playing of Micho Russell. The tune is also known as “The Yellow Cow”. John Williams recorded a nice version of this tune on his first solo album as well.

I also recorded this reel with Tom Delany on uilleann pipes as part of the Spirit of Doolin video series, see below.
