Tune of the Day: The Grey Beard

Traditional Irish reel

In his 1903 collection Music Of Ireland, Francis O'Neill indicates as the source for this tune Chicago fiddler Edward Cronin, originally from County Tipperary, Ireland. Cronin was a weaver and a machinist, who boasted that he never forgot nor forgave a slight, but who could play tune after tune steadily for hours. O'Neill considered him an excellent musician, and obtained many tunes from him.
