Tune of the Day: Mulqueen's Reel
Traditional Irish reel
The earliest appearance of this reel is, under the title “Free and Easy”, in the Rice-Walsh manuscript, a collection of music from the repertoire of Jeremiah Breen, a blind Irish fiddler, notated by his pupil Thomas Rice and later copied by Sgt. James P. Walsh of the Chicago police in the early 20th century.
