Old Wheels of the World (Larry Redican's version)

Story

'The Wheels of the World' is known to musicians as the title of both a reel and a jig. The two tunes are not related musically, and both are unrelated to the tune presented here. I learned 'The Old Wheels of the World' from pianist Eleanor Kane Neary when I visited Chicago in 1972. It is played on this track by fiddle player Larry Redican, slightly differently from the way I heard Eleanor playing it.
