What Flook tune is this?

Re: What Flook tune is this?

There are three tunes If I listened carefully enough (my little daughter came in and started talking to me); the last is a gavotte, also to be found on the 1st Lunasa album. The 1st tune is almost certainly a Brian Finnegan composition.

Re: What Flook tune is this?

The 2nd is on The Red Crow by Altan, dunno which track or tune.

Re: What Flook tune is this?

The Teelin Highland it is.

Ineresting thing about the last tune is it isn’t actually a Gavotte but a Laride.

Here’s the set that Flook play on the video:

1) Eliza Ross’/Uist Reel - https://thesession.org/tunes/3473
2) The Highland Fiddle/The Teelin - Not in database
3) Gavotte - https://thesession.org/tunes/2081

Flook recorded this exact set as Track 2 of the 2001 Irish Folk Festival CD:

Note that Altan pages link to the wrong "Teelin". The tune is this one, which I’ll put in the database:

Thanks for all the replies. The Uist Reel is the one I’m most interested in. I wish I could find a decent recording of it.

Re: What Flook tune is this?

If you want a recording of the Uist reel, it’s on the first track of Lunasa’s "Redwood" album (with pipes playing the lead).
