“The Hare’s Paw” was one of the first reel I ever learned. I got it from my friend Stéphane and Paul Dooley (fiddle/harp) at a session in McHugh’s Pub in Liscannor. A common set in the area is to play “The Hare’s Paw” before another great tune, “The Concert Reel”.
“Charlie Harris’ Reel No. 1” is part of a set that I learned at a great session in Cooley’s Pub, in Ennistymon, with Stéphane, Adam Shapiro, Paul Dooley and a few others. It is played with another reel and they’re known together as “Charlie Harris’ Reels” and were recorded by De Dannan.
This reel also goes by the names “John Blessing’s” and “O’Connell’s Reel”, which is the oldest name I could find.
