    Here's a fun tune. Couldn't find it as a TOW selection. I heard David Surette do this and thought it was his but apparently an Irish flute player wrote it.

    Nice reel, Mike. Interesting turns the tune takes. Fine picking once again.

    Clear picking of a partly tricky tune, Mike. With the double stops in the second round and variation of the third part you gave your own touch. Just enjoyable.

    I think I have heard this tune in sessions before, and a tricky one it is. It also has inexplicable ways of reminding me of Irving Berlin's Puttin' on the Ritz...

    Hi Mike, good version!

    Despite the Irish name, fluter Niall Kenny who wrote this is from Scotland

    Nicely done, Mike. I'm also sure I've heard this tune before, but can't place it. The name doesn't ring a bell, though. I agree with the others that it sounds tricky to play on mandolin, maybe easier on flute. There's a drone character to it.

    Fine picking on this somewhat hypnotic tune, Mike!

    David Surette is one of my favourite players, but I don't remember hearing this tune from him. When did you hear him play it?

    Well played, of course! It does sound difficult.
