Bird's Nest, The


Tina Lech, a former fiddle instructor at Boston College, performs this tune for all of us to hear. Tina learned the reel from a tape I gave to her of Larry Redican, the Dublin fiddle player who lived in New York. The tune's title was given to me by Nicky McAuliffe from County Kerry. Expert that he is, Nicky told me that master Cape Breton fiddle player Angus Chisholm had recorded it under the name 'The Bird's Nest'.
