Róisín Dubh, tune structure
I was captured by the motif of the slow air Róisín Dubh played by Séamus Tansey in Episode 5 of Slí na mBeaglaoich. In trying to understand and learn the tune, I came up with the transcription that I posted here https://thesession.org/tunes/4184#setting38084 and that suggests a tune structure in terms of 8-pulse phrases and 4-pulse subphrases.
Does anybody know if there are any dance tunes related to this slow air, has happens for instance with the hornpipe, set dance and reel associated with the slow air The Blackbird? Or could anybody point me to further info on this tune?
