Rathlin Island-Sporting Paddy

The Rathlin Island reel and Sporting Paddy reel have become famous by this incredible performance of Sharon Shannon on tin whistle. I think this version of Sharon Shannon is absolutely one of the funkiest ones. Beautiful virtuoso tin whistle playing and what a great band! Perfect example of traditional Irish music in a modern jacket.

In the sheet music you can find the tin whistle notes and the chords of the tunes. The chords in the sheet music are slightly different than the ones on the recording of Sharon Shannon, but it is how I play it with my band.
