SPLENDID ISOLATION. AKA and see “McGlinchey's (2)," “Brendan McGlinchey's (1).” Irish, Reel. Composed by fiddler Brendan McGlinchey in 1972 as a reel, the result of an “outpouring of emotion” following the end of a tour and the parting of friends. McGlinchey reworked the tune twenty years later as an air, after he resumed playing after a long hiatus.
