Traditional Irish Music
I'm learning a new tune everyday. This is a beautiful D dorian reel. I learned it from a couple sources, one being the talented Billy O'Brien who won the Under 18 All Ireland fleadh. You can see the video over at Comhaltas' channel. (or copy and paste this link: http://comhaltas.ie/music/detail/comhaltaslive_333_3_billy_obrien/) Also, Martin Hayes, De Danann, and Tommy Peoples also have great recordings of it. When I hear it, I wonder about who Jenny and Charlie were. It sounds like a great love song to me. And we all know the best love songs have no words.
