The Hole In The Kettle

Got this great reel from the Coisir album "On the rIght track". They playing it slowly before Belle Aisle. They play it in Cm but I’ve submitted it in the more session friendly Em. Here it is in Cm.

For the whistle or flute you can play the Em version on a Bb whistle, playing the low B’s up an octave, to get Cm.

Do you know who composed this tune ?

Re: The Hole In The Kettle

"CD is a nice mix of traditional tunes and tunes written (*in quotes and parentheses*) by and/or learned from Claire Mann ("Mrs. Malaprop"), Lamond Gillespie, Micheal O Raghallaigh, Garry Shannon, Kevin Burke, Fintan McManus ("Bouzouki Players Nightmare"), Brian Byrne ("Brian Byrne’s), Carmel O’Dea ("Nice and Easy"), Ryan MacNeil ("O’Keeffes of Dublin"), Tim O’Leary ("Strathspey Gan Ainm"), Kevin Crawford, and Pat McManus ("Hole in Kettle", "Belle Aisle")".

The above is taken from the "comments" when the recording was posted here, so possibly composed by Pat McManus.
