    This week's winner is The Girl That Broke My Heart, which is a reel. I'm not familiar with this tune. It's also known as The Girl Who Broke My Heart. It seems that this tune fits into the category of Irish Traditional (IT).

    Here's a link to five settings on The Session.. Make sure to read the comments section, too, for more info!

    Finally got a moment to record this, have had some added distractions in the form of a new puppy and a new concertina!

    You hit the nail on the head there Jill, lovely pace and toe tapping swing. Just the right amount of ornamentation, and your mandolin sounds really really good.

    Lovely playing and pace, Jill. Looking forward to hearing the concertina when you get round to recording something (between all the walks for the puppy!).

    I'll put a few more hours in on the concertina before I brave a tune for ye all, but I have to say I'm loving it, great craic altogether so it is! The pup is a beagle and keeping me very busy, will post a photo of her soon as well!
