Gan Ainm should be banned as a title - Discuss!
Gan Ainm is the stupidest tune title and it should be banned from The Session. Discuss.
I’ve been playing with TunePal and the most common match is with tunes in The Session.
For fun, I played Will the Barber into it. It was 84% likely that I was playing Gan Ainm, (https://thesession.org/tunes/6770)
This is also there as Colonne De La Gavre, AKA La Gavre, Albinia
Now I have edited it there are two entries for the same tune. Unnecessary duplication, but one less Gan Ainm.
Where did this Gan Ainm nonsense start from was it Bulmer and Sharpley or early Ceolthas CE publications.
It should be banned from the session. Why is Gan Ainm superior to "Nameless Tune"? Because it’s Irish?
Air sans nom, Aria senza nome… all useless. Leading to duplication of tunes which is bad enough here.
