Picked up this nice three-part jig from a video on the RTÉ from a link posted by Ptarmigan in the discussions board, it is the very first tune that is played by the flute player Roger Sherlock.
Here is the link:
The tune is named after a musician from the London Irish music scene, Joe Whelan.
… and it’s a great tune!!
This is "Wallop The Spot" - recorded by Matt Molloy on his "Shadows Of Stone" CD. There is a 2-part version already posted here, so it’s only 66% of a duplication.
ah right well spotted Kenny, i assumed this tune was a composition of Sherlock’s…. great tune anyway will definitely learn all three parts just in case they all get played in a session.
Kevin Crawford plays this tune along with Jug of Brown Ale (don’t know it) on his "d" Flute Album. In the set it is called Spot the Wollop. This tune is highly similar, but lacks a third part-unlike this version.
A couple of people have already transcribed similar versions with three parts: https://thesession.org/tunes/818/comments
Spot the Wallop
The tune, in three parts, was popular among London Irish musicians. I learned it from Tommy McCarthy and always knew it as Wallop the Spot. it’s in Ceol Rince na hÉireann 5 under that name as well.
