The Big Ship & Rakish Paddy [Vintage]


In this session we take a look at two Irish Trad reels - the Big Ship and Rakish Paddy. These two parted reels are excellent blends of rhythm and technique. Start slow and slowly add the speed - all the while remembering to keep the pulse alive! A wonderful addition to any repertoire!
