Tune of the Day: Crossing the Field
Traditional Irish reel
This reel comes from 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. As noted by Irish music collector Breandán Breathnach, the tune appears to be related to “Heather Breeze”.
