Around Lough Graney


Who better to perform this tune than Martin Hayes, whose home place in County Clare is close to Lough Graney? This reel was shared back and forth across the Shannon among musicians from counties Galway, Tipperary, and Clare. Martin's treatment of the tune gives us exactly what I hoped to hear: his deep insight into the stylistic elements of this lovely reel.
