Plough And The Stars (The)

The Plough And The Stars is a reel I have learned through various sessions in the area. I also associate it with the playing of Murty Ryan, who recorded it on his duet album with Siobhan Peoples “Time On Our Hands”.

I have recorded this tune with with my friend Adrian McMahon on flute and with the help of Pat Dowling on keyboard to a video we made for the Micilín Conlon Memorial Weekend in 2020. It’s the second tune in the video, check it out below!
