Looking for the name of this instrumental piece

Looking for the name of this instrumental piece

Hi everyone. I’ve been looking for a long time this traditional irish piece’s name, with no result at all. I’ve asked for it in many forums about celtic music, but no one has answered me. I’ve found this web by chance, and thought maybe anyone of you could bring out some light to me. Sorry about the mistakes I’ve done (for sure), I’m from Spain so english is not my natural way to express.

All I know about the track is it was played at the Point Stadium (Dublin) by Irish band The Corrs, in 1999. Here’s a link where you can download the track:

I only have to say thanks in advance, hope some of you can help me! Goodbye everyone

I think the second tune is in O’Neill’s as Young Tom Ennis.

The Corrs are playing it in A Dorian as it can be found on Kevin Crawford’s, In Good Company album and John Doyle’s, Evening Coes Early.

The first tune is The Morning Star

It is a very different version from the poor transcription posted here though. I see there are lots of different versions in the comments section of the tune though.

I should credit Dr Brian Duggan’s tunepal.org in helping find these answers as well. If you need to find a name of a tune then you could do worse than picking up a whistle and playing it into the program:

Re: Looking for the name of this instrumental piece

Wow, thank you! I really didn’t expect an answer to come so fast! I’m very grateful for your help. I’m looking on the web for the tunes you have told me and now I can completely identify the second part of the piece as ‘Young Tom Ennies’, but the first part is hardly recognizable as all the versions of ‘Morning Star’ are quite different to the Corr’s one. I’ll keep on looking for. Anyway, thanks so so much!!

Re: Looking for the name of this instrumental piece

All versions of Morning Star are different, it is because of this fact that it falls flat whenever I try to start it in the session, despite learning as many different versions as possible. I am particularly fond of the setting played by Paddy Keegan with the Bothy Band

Re: Looking for the name of this instrumental piece

oh the track is called Drunken Landlady after the third tune in the set

Re: Looking for the name of this instrumental piece

It is definitely the Morning Star. Some versions of the tune are fast, some are slow. This version would be one of the slower ones. I have The Bothy Band version too. It is great. A nice slower version would be John Doyle’s on Evening Comes Early.

Oh - just noticed that that means John Doyle plays both tunes on the same album. He must be a Corrs fan! ;-)
