Tara and Dáire
Marie Reilly, the fiddle player from New York, played this reel at a Gaelic Roots Festival concert at Boston College, her alma mater. Thanks to Marie for bringing the tune to our attention. I did my utmost to find the tune's composer in order to give credit in the collection, but my efforts were unsuccessful. I now know that this delightful reel is a version of 'The Easy Club' composed by Jim Sutherland. The track is played here by Tara Breen and Dáire Mulhern, for whom I named the tune before I learned of its correct title. Thanks to composer Jim Sutherland for his lovely reel.
