As I write this, we are in the midst of a global pandemic. As we all do our best to self-quarantine, what a great time to practice our instruments and learn some new tunes! Hey, we do what we can with what we have, right?
It's also Saint Patrick's Day, and although the pubs are closed and parades cancelled, at least we can share music online and raise a glass to our collective health. So to all, a great big sláinte!
Elise Kress, what would we do without you and your enthusiasm for this project? Elise is back with another tune: Mulqueen's Reel. Come, let's learn it together.
About this tune, Elise says: "A great reel that's not too hard to learn. It's played a lot around the DC metropolitan area, particularly at Dennis Botzer and Marc Glickman's Sunday session at McNamara's pub in Arlington. I've attached a gorgeous version by De Danann."
So let's give it a listen:
Slowed down for learning
