Kevin Burke - In Good Company

Track 19 of this album is a nice tune called Flowers of the Forest. However it is not the one on this site or Fiddler’s Companion. Can anyone identify the version on KB’s CD ?

Thanks

Re: Kevin Burke - In Good Company

It’s a Finnish tune, Metsakukkia (which translates roughly as the forestflowers)

Has this Kevin Burke reel got an alternative title?

Track 7 on KB’s ‘Very Best of’ has a great set comprising Maudabawnun Chapel / Wild Irishman / "The Mother"

I can’t find any dots or abc or info on "The Mother" - can anyone shed some light?

Thanks

Sorry - track 12 !

The set originally apeared on his album "Portland" and listed as "The Moher." But it’s usually called "The Abbey Reel": https://thesession.org/tunes/477

Thanks guys - you’ve come up trumps yet again. This site is quite awesome!

We used to come up rumps until now that we found that missing ‘t’.

Oh - now I understand, it’s a scrabble forum!

It might go nicely together with "The Cruel Father".
