This one is the real thing! These two Irish reels, "The Boys of Malin" and "The Gravel Walks" from County Donegal, are brisk and straight-ahead. All the players get fantastic parts, from the basses imitating the Irish hand drum, to cello and viola features in the first tune, to the violins playing in unison or octaves, racing to the end. This arrangement also offers the option of playing the tunes separately. It's the perfect opener or encore!
