Tune of the Day: Johnny When You Die

Traditional Irish reel

This reel is taken from Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in 1922. It is a variant of “Weel may the Keel Row”, a North of England song tune. O'Neill's source is the Rice-Walsh manuscript, a collection of music from the repertoire of Jeremiah Breen, a blind fiddler from North Kerry, Ireland, notated by his student.
