as MIDIs (see the links above).
You may also access other MIDIs (not written by me, but sequenced by me)
by clicking on the "Celtic/Bluegrass/Reels/More Celtic MIDIs" page links.
(You may find more MIDIs sequenced by me on some of the websites listed on the LINKS page.)
You are free to listen to the tunes, to learn them and to play them, with my

If anybody wants to make spectacularly sequenced MIDI files from some of the tunes, and wishes to have them linked from this Web Page, please email me.
