​  Tune For January

Hello and Welcome to my first tune of the New Year!! Happy 2022 to all far and near and I hope this year will be a good one for all of us.

I have decided to start off the New Year with a lovely reel called "Murphy's Greyhound.  It is an old East Clare reel.  I believe it is more widely known by the name "O Reilly's Greyhound" but word has it that Martin "Junior"Crehan corrected the name as "Murphy's Greyhound".  So that is what I will call it.  I most recently heard this tune on Randal Bays lovely fiddle album "Up The West" and immediately was reminded of Kitty Hayes and her recording of it.

I recorded it in the key of C, D, and G.  You can pick which one you like best and learn it that way or learn all 3 :-) 

I have included a link to the YouTube clip of the great Kitty Hayes playing it in C and she follows it by another great reel called "The Limerick Lassies".

I have attached a link to Randal Bays album "Up The West" also so you can hear his lovely playing and "Murphy's Greyhound" is track 4!
