New Mown Meadow (The)

I learned The New Mown Meadow from the playing of Terry Bingham. It is a great reel that suits C#/D accordion players very well in particular and it is also quite common to hear this tune in A minor. I associate “The New Mown Meadow” with the playing of Seamus Begley and Steve Cooney as well, who recorded it on their legendary Meitheal album back in 1996.

It is also quite common in E minor in sessions around Doolin, as recorded by the great band Moher.
