Tunes you hear all the time, and tunes you wish you heard more often.
Hi all. This is my first post, other than my bio. I’ve lurked for a long time even before joining TS. I love this place and thanks devs and admin for providing such a really nice site to come and learn a thing or two about Irish Trad.
I’m learning tunes on my own still and haven’t been to a session yet, but as things get better c-vid related, I hope to get out to one some time soon. I understand that every location’s repertoire is different, and you’ll hear a wide variety of different tunes from one session, to the next, and the next.
That being said, two questions:
1) What are tunes you hear a lot at the sessions you’ve been to (or seen)? Ones that, despite session, seem to be pretty well known almost anywhere you’re at.
2) What is a tune (or tunes) you wish you heard more often because you love it so much, but no one seems to know it where you’re at, how to accompany it, or whatever other reason?
