I know the second tune as Merry Blacksmith

Re: I’ve got a long list of tunes I would like identifying, anybody like to help?

First is the Killavil; not so sure about the second.

Detlefs, you’re right it is also known as The Merry Blacksmith.

The jigs: First comes the 2nd part of "The One That Was Lost" (composed by Paddy O’Brien).
Then as someone else wrote above "The Killavil Jig".
And the last jig is indeed "An Buachaillin Bui"

We (some of us, at least) never tire of tune ID posts. But why not post all you links in one go, to save the thread from getting too rambling?

I’m actually enjoying this drip-feeding of videos—each time feels like the next round of a quiz. 🙂

Re: I’ve got a long list of tunes I would like identifying, anybody like to help?

the 2nd vid, [ending 765] is The Longford Tinker/The Sailor’s Bonnet - maybe they started with The Tarbolton but it didnt get recorded? Going to listen to some of the others now.

Re: I’ve got a long list of tunes I would like identifying, anybody like to help?

next one, [462] Mist Covered Mountain/The Kilfenora - then a lot of chat and about 7;30 a jig I’m unfamiliar with. Someone else’s turn now!

Re: I’ve got a long list of tunes I would like identifying, anybody like to help?

The 5th one (ending 1511) is Tinkers Daughter.

Sorry, Jeremy - I’ve spoilt your fun.

1785476761763468 appears to be the same tunes as 1778869982424146 (the 2nd clip posted), except that we dont hear the last B-part of The One That Was Lost.

CMO - I’m sure i read somewhere there was some dispute as to whether Michael Coleman himself
referred to the reel as ‘Tinker’ or ‘Collector’ but i am always willing to concede to someone with greater knowledge.

"…some dispute as to whether Michael Coleman himself

Ah, well I wouldn’t want to argue with the great man - and your knowledge is clearly greater than mine as I did not know that. But there are two completely different tunes, one of which is most commonly known as ‘The Longford Collector’ and the other ‘The Longofrd Tinker’ (or ‘Spinster’). By using the ‘Collector’ version of the name, there should be no ambiguity over which tune is being referred to.

Re: I’ve got a long list of tunes I would like identifying, anybody like to help?

CMO - ok well I didnt know that - so we both learnt something today. Thanks be to theSession!

When I want to know a tune name, I use TunePal. I play the first 2 or 3 bars and normally TP finds the tune. If I do not play the tune yet I learn the first bars and play them to TP
