The great fiddle player from New York City, Mr. Tony De Marco, composed this reel for his friend Linda Hickman, herself a lovely flute player. When I heard this reel performed by Tony and Charlie Lennon on Tony's CD The Sligo Indian, I fell in love with it instantly. Tony was so gracious when I asked him if he would record it for this collection. 'Consider it done,' he said. Tony, the reel brings a smile to my face. It is a wonderful tune, so happy and full of love.
