Roland’s Return

This is a major key and a bit brighter tune than the other "Roland’s Return" in the database, and this is the first tune of a two tune set from Conor McCarthy’s and Annemarie McCormack’s recording "Ace and Deuce." It is followed by McCarthy’s tune "The Ballycarroll Jig." In the recording notes the couple dedicate the tune set to their friends and neighbors in Ballycarroll and "The Parish."

Forgot to note the 3-part version is also from the playing of Conor McCarthy.

Roland’s U-Turn

"Someone has already transcribed a 3-part version of this tune as a setting of "The Rambling Pitchfork": http://www.thesession.org/tunes/89/comments#comment207658 I actually think it deserves a separate post though the two tunes are related. "

That was me who posted that. And yes, you’re right. It is quite different. I was just trying to be "conservative" and not creating new entries all over. Perhaps I’ll repost as a new tune if someone hasn’t already.
