Tune ID

There’s a vid on FB of Vinnie Kilduff and Chalie Lennon; the last tune has a B part that sounds like the Congress Reel; I’ve played it but don’t have the name (just brain fade, probably). Can anyone help? Thanks much!

Pretty tune, never heard it before!

Re: Tune ID

Kilduff’s playing it in Bm (and, unless my ear is off, on an Eb whistle). It’s widely played in Ador/Am and then sounds much like a twisty, tasteful riff on the Corner House. On fiddle at least, I like it in Bm.

Cracking tune, I’d somehow forgotten that I know it. So thanks for the reminder, and happy to help.

“Pretty tune, never heard it before!”

“It’s widely played in Ador/Am”

Both quotes show how unique every session is. While not many play it around here, I’ve known it since at least 1999. (I picked it up in numerous sessions, with different musicians.) I have never heard it in Ador/Am.

Great tune.

Re: Tune ID

18 years since I posted that. Nearly forgotten it myself, and I have to say I haven’t heard it played that often in sessions since, although it has been recorded several times.
