Tune of the Day: McMahon's Reel

aka “The Banshee”

Here's another Irish reel. This is one of the best for beginners, as it is quite simple to learn and to get up to speed. It it said to have been composed by James McMahon, a flute player who lived in Belfast and played an ivory flute.

This tune goes well with The Wind that Shakes the Barley.
