The Humours of Tulla

Written by Paul Conlon. Posted in Advanced Level, Newly added tunes

This is a great reel and very common in any session. I first heard it in a recording by Stockton’s Wing and immediately added it to my repertoire. It fits in nicely with ‘The Silver Spear’ and ‘Saint Anne’s reel’ and also ‘Toss The Feathers’.
