Dunmore Lassies – Back to School

We gave a musical lesson at primary school De Westerburcht in Eelde on the Friday before the schools were allowed to reopen after they were closed by Covid-19. The images during Dunmore Lassies are holiday photos from Ireland by David Myles

Dunmore Lassies

This is a traditional also called Dunmore Lasses or Morrison’s Reel.

The original title is Morrison’s Reel and refers to Galway flutist Tom Morrision (1889-1958). When recording the melody at 78 rpm in 1927 it was titled “the Dunmore Lasses”

Morrison’s Reel

Three-time Ireland champion Irish flute player Paddy Carty (1929-1985, Loughrea, County Galway) recorded the tune as “Morrison’s” on his 1975 Shanachie Records album. Carty was known for his smooth East Galway playing style.
