YouTube Tune ID

Hi all,

Stumbled onto a great recording of Beòlach playing at the Vancouver Celtfest in 2007. They play a set beginning with ‘Noon Lasses’, followed by a reel in Gmaj and finishing with a reel in Emaj.

Anyone able to identify ‘em?
Many thanks!

I liked that, but can’t identify those two.

Re: YouTube Tune ID

The second one is The Steampacket

Re: YouTube Tune ID

the third one sounds a bit on the scottish side to my poor ear…

Re: YouTube Tune ID

Pretty sure the 3rd one is a Cape Breton tune, but can’t think of the name. "Steampacket" is the 2nd one, as "pipewatcher" has said. It seems to be undergoing a revival in popularity at the moment - good thing too.

Awesome – thanks for that y’all. The third is less important since Emaj is problematic for whistle/pipes 😉

I don’t know………… but there is something about that kind od ‘jerky style’ playing that makes me think that the record is jumping all over the place ???????????

Re: YouTube Tune ID

hilarious! I wonder does the phrase "touching cloth" have the same meaning in the rest of the English-speaking world as here in the US?

Re: YouTube Tune ID

I think it probably does!

Re: YouTube Tune ID

If you read the comments in the section of the tune, i tbink you’ll find it does.

p.s. what’s more, the composer of Touching Cloth also wrote a tune called Sitting on the Throne ;)
