Accordion player, fiddle player, and all-around entertainer Frank Quinn lived in New York and recorded for a number of record companies in the 1930s. I heard this reel played by him on an old 78 RPM recording. Jimmy Noonan plays flute on this selection and is joined by Dan Gurney on accordion. Together they give us a wonderful rendition of this tune. A great afternoon of music played at my home in Maine culminated in this reel which they had only learned that day. Thanks again, lads, for all the hard work.
