Another Kilfenora

Was Fenora really that Bad? Excuse the joke please.
I learned this off a little tiny book with 50 tunes. Tommy Peoples Played the learning tape. Some of the book was very common. Some of the book was quite unique. I learned quite a few pieces out of that book.

Forgive me for not being specific. I’ll check it out soon enough but in the meantime - I have been hearing a tune on the Lunasa/Lunasa CD that reminds me of this number.

I like the way this tune shifts from A dorian in the 1st part to G major in the 2nd part, without making a big deal out of it.

The A part at least sounds like the tune I call Scatter the Mud, called The Noonday Feast on Lunasa’s first album.

Nice little jig

I heard it on Geradine Cotter’s CD and it sounded pretty
nice, haven’t come across this one anywhere yet though.

Do take notice that some of the "Bd" parts are actually
Bc#d that she uses.
Also, she ornaments only once and It’s actually a short roll.

A mistake

I think the C# was changed to a natural C which makes the
tune sound a bit weird.. 🙂

The Maids Of Tramore

Been playing this jig for years which I found in the Roche Collection, Vol. 1. I play bar twelve as written above. Roche has bar twelve as: e2d efg. That seems to be a typo to me.
