Tune of the Day: Banished to America

Traditional Irish air

This tune comes from the Rice-Walsh manuscript, a collection of music from the repertoire of Jeremiah Breen, a blind fiddler from North Kerry, Ireland. His tunes were noted down by Thomas Rice, a talented pupil, and later copied by his friend James P. Walsh.
