Midsummer’s Night

…By Vincent Broderick. Great tune - I knew someone would post it sooner or later.
Dervish’s setting on their title track goes something like this:
|:egdB ABAG|EG~G2 EGDG|egdB A2 (3Bcd|(efg fa gedg|
egdB ABAG|EG~G2 EGDE|G3A BA (3Bcd|1 egdB BAA2:|2 egdB cAFA||

I lost the B-part in the process of posting, but it’s much the same as SP & MR’s setting. It’s the A-part that’s a bit different. Read (3efg for (efg - have just woken up so am not with it yet.

Midsummer Night

Cathal McConnel recorded this tune with Patsy Hanly and John Joe Maguire on the "Boys Of The Lough" LP "Good Friends, Good Music". They followed it with another two of Vincent Broderick’s compositions, "The Tinker’s Daughter" and "The Crock Of Gold" . You quite often come across all 3 played together as a set. All are great flute tunes.
