Tune of the Day: Lady Kelly's Reel

Traditional Irish reel

This reel is taken from Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in 1922. O'Neill remarks:

This famous reel as played by John Kelly, a fiddler of phenomenal execution now living in San Francisco Cal., is a florid setting of Sergt. James O'Neill's “Northern Lasses” printed in the O'Neill Collections. Kelly, a native of Roscommon, Ireland, says this reel was known as “Kelly's Reel” before his time.
