Playing away in preparation for International Uilleann Pipes Day, this one rolled out of the bag.
It’s one of those itinerant tunes that comes up every now and again. There’s a version in O’Neill’s Waifs and strays.
Two small typos: missing bar line in the 3rd line and I think the second b in the last line should be a B.
Also, the BC at the end of the 1st ending to the B-part is redundant, since it already appears as the pick-up on the repeat.
Thanks Gary. Fixed.
To honour our Prof, I gonna try it on my C narrow chanter!
I like those drops to the low D in bars 1, 3 and 5 a lot! I also like to do this a bit more often as variations. Carrying it to extremes:
