Nice tune, now tell us more about it…

I like a little mystery as much as the next guy, but a blank screen? C’mon, clue us in! I was able to figure out that it shows up on the most recent Mike McGoldrick CD, but that’s all I’ve got. It sounds newly composed to me, did McGoldrick write it? Also, I found some minor errors with your ABC’s, I found it much easier to read the sheet music if you group the notes thus:

Drop us a line in this comments section & let us in in on the big secret!

Thanks for correction🙂 but

I don’t know who the composer. I think it’s probably McGoldrick’s tune, but I’m not sure.

McGoldrick

It is indeed a McGoldrick tune.

The sleeve notes say:

"The first tune [in the set] I wrote for Declan McCarthy and the musicians who help organise Baltimore Fiddle Fair, a great festival in West Cork."
