“Bun A’ Tsaútháin” ~ C: Derek McGinley

track 4, the second hornpipe of two ~ as I continue praise in action for this lovely recording ~
“Derek McGinley & Tara Connaghan: The Far Side of the Glen”
https://thesession.org/recordings/4134

Yes, I love this recording, even if it does keep reminding me of our ‘Far Side’ cartoon collection, but that’s just the title. I also love this hornpipe of Derek’s. There’s a lot of barndance and old timey dance about it, and humour. It’s a kick to play and raises a smile hearing it and dancing to it. I just hope Derek doesn’t mind my adding it here, and that he finds the transcription at least a reasonable one, not too far off the mark.

In order to try to keep things sane as far as bars, I’ve left out some alternatives, but I have added the ending/finish. Here’s another way with the first and second endings for the A-part:

Track 3 (not 4): Kelly’s Fancy / Bun A’ tSrútháin (hornpipes) - Derek solo

~ “The second tune is a composition of Derek McGinley, the title commemorating a local spot visible from the front door of Derek’s home in Min A’ Chearrbhaigh.”
