This tune is a Donegal highland. I learnt it from Jill Elliot in Bristol, England and transcribed it, with her permission, from her teaching performance. It follows on well from Jimmy Lyons, another Donegal highland on this website.

Kissin‘ ’highland‘ cousins, basically the same tune with some nice choices for variations - and - originating with ’the man’, Mr. James Scott Skinner…

In honor of James Byrne

Here is a version of “The Seaweed at the Yellow Cliff” based on James’ “The Road To Glenlough” recording.

May he rest in peace.
