rousing, mad maggiefied traditional Celtic reel

This is a free download. Enjoy!

AS HEARD ON TV: "Sleepy Maggie" from "Crazed and Enthused" is used in "The Black Donnellys" pilot. About 7 minutes into the show there's a bar scene --"Sleepy Maggie" plays throughout the scene. This series is created by Paul Haggis (Million Dollar Baby, Crash, Casino Royale) and written by Robert Moresco (Million Dollar Baby, Crash).

The tune is a Mad Maggiefied version of a traditional reel. (NB: There are other versions of the show online with different music--something to do with licensing. So if you hear a less gritty, more trad tune in the scene, it's not us.)
