Neilidh O’Boyle’s Highland

Learnt off all-female Scottish band Dòchas’s first album. According to the notes, the band’s keyboardist Kathleen Boyle got this tune from her grandfather Neilidh O’Boyle. Neilidh O’Boyle was the legendary Donegal fiddler, who is cited as the source of several rare tunes in Altan’s early recordings.

On the recording this highland is followed by two more tunes which have been associated with N. O’Boyle:

Great tune!

Thanks for sharing it!
