This instrumental is a pleasant, pastoral sound out of Ireland that is quite popular in many music session groups. Not much is known about the tune, except that it was written by a young man out of Irrul in County Mayo, Ireland known as "Freckled" Donal MacNamara. It's an ode by a young poet honoring the winds that blow across Munster, Connaught, and Mayo counties. Our KelticDead Music Group put this tune composition together using live instruments that are normally used in Celtic music.
