Songs as tunes
Lately I’ve been toying around with "The Boys Of Fair Hill/Kelly, The Boy From Killane" as a tune set (when I’m feeling really inspired by the rhythm and my fingers seem to do what they should be doing, tacking on The Boys Of Wexford and The Mountains Of Pomeroy).
It set me off thinking.
Many song-tunes aren’t necessarily part of the dance music canon and yet they’re ripe for getting the oul’ session treatment. Tunes like "The Boys of Wexford" and "The Mountains Of Pomeroy" as mentioned above have found their way into many a sessioneer’s repertoire. However do any of you out there have any "songs" which you like to play as session-tunes (or tunes that you play in the house for your own enjoyment)?
(We can take as read, of course, slow airs - almost all of which exist as songs in their parallel universe.)
