Johnny McIljohn’s Reel

This is a pretty simple tune to learn to get the term started, but fun to play with others. It sounds like a Shetland tune, and has been recorded by Cathal McConnell from the Scottish band ‘Boys of the Lough’ but Johnny McIljohn was a Northern Irish musician. There are a couple of tunes under the same name so enjoy learning the tune.
Lunasa recently recorded a great version of the tune in their new album “Redwood.”
