🎵 The Congress Reel is a popular tune at Irish sessions. Joe Mills composed this reel in 1932. This was the year of the eucharistic congress in Dublin, which was one of the biggest eucharistic congresses of the 20th century.
I start this reel at a beginner’s pace. It continues up to an intermediate level with variations at a session speed arrangement.
