Chestnut Hill


This reel was composed by Séamus McGuire in honour of Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, the location of Boston College. Séamus was invited to teach and perform at the Boston College Gaelic Roots Festival. He plays his tune here with his brother Manus McGuire on fiddle and Garry O'Briain on mandocello and piano. Séamus, Manus, and Garry were also part of the teaching staff at the University's Gaelic Roots Festival.
