Atherfield by Andy Cutting

Composed by Andy Cutting.
He plays it at a relaxed pace in duet with Michael McGoldrick.
They play around with the tune using subtle variations but what I’ve submitted here is what I gather the basic tune to be.

C: Andy Cutting and/or Terry Mann

From Andy Cutting himself…

“Hello. Since recording it and quite a deal of research over several years (I could remember making the second part but never the first!) I discovered that the first part was in fact composed by Terry Mann (a tune he calls The Skittery Jig. I had learnt it subliminally from his band Saxophony) on re pressing my record the sleeve notes will reflect this discovery. He’s a great multi instrumentalist, composer and musician.
