Stock Music track: Red Haired Boy - Merry Blacksmith

A popular Irish traditional hornpipe which leads into a faster reel at 1:23. Jolly, fun and pounding, this is gauranteed to get the heart pumping. Really strong and driving, this gets the crowd up dancing at a traditional music session in a pub. Fiddle, guitar and bodhran come together for a powerful and booming performance. 100% live performance. This track has two titles because this is traditionally how many Irish pub tunes are performed, as a double set of short tunes, the first leading directly into the second.
