T:The Glen Fiddler
C:Ed Reavy
N:Ed was told there lived near the edge of the
N:glen a fiddler unlike any he had ever heard. To this day he wonders
N:about that solitary fiddler and the strange tunes he played beside a
N:distant glen in Cavan. Although he never saw him play, Ed has heard
N:some of those same strange tunes in his dreams. And they have become
N:his finest compositions.
Z:Joe Reavy
