The Humours Of Newcastle

This is another tune I picked up from the "Tuned Up" album by Brendan Mulholland, Brendan Hendry and Paul McSherry. Surprised it’s not here already. It’s a traditional tune and appears in O’Neill’s.

Here’s how it appears there….

Mick Moloney on his recording with Eugene O’Donnell obviously uses X2.
