St Brigid's Day reels composed by John Kelly Senior

St Brigid was a patron of the arts and her influence lives on in contemporary composition. These two tunes were written in the 1980s by John Kelly Snr and were published by his grand-daughter Aoife Kelly on John Kelly, Capel Street, a website dedicated to his musical legacy.

The links below bring you to this site where you can hear John play his own compositions, and the interactive scores in this collection provide all the resources required to learn the tunes.
