Patsy Hanly's


I played a recording of this reel for my friend Jimmy Noonan. The identity of the player was a mystery to me, but Jimmy's astute judgment identified the musician as Patsy Hanly, the flute player from County Roscommon. Who better, then, to play this reel for my collection than Jimmy Noonan himself? Jimmy is joined by two-row button accordionist Dan Gurney. Patsy would be proud of their rendition.
