I forgot to put the repetition dots in the B part.
sorry

Heard this tune on Thistle and Shamrock; had to look it up. My session will enjoy it!

Another recording

This tune is also on Laurence Nugent’s CD "Two For Two" (http://bit.ly/d7WGmJ). Amazon lists it as track 14: "Banks of the Suir / Lois Na Banriona (The Fort of the Fairy Queen)," though I have it as track #15 out of 16. It’s a very nice track; "Banks of the Suir" is a beautiful air and beautifully played, and it’s a great lead-in to this tune.

Fairy music

Really happy to have found this tune…currently putting together a set of music all to do with the fairies for a project I’m working on…thank you for putting this lovely tune up there!
