The Salamanca Reel

One of the classic Irish reels. Uilleann pipe & whistle crans in bar 1 & bar 3 , plus the stacatto triplets.

The cran is an ornament unique to the uilleann pipes & whistles. The sound cannot be properly notated, and involves percussing on to a note from another.

You can hear a cran in this uilleann pipes tune. Song of the Chanter
