Herman The German’s

Lovely tune played by Josephine Marsh.

Herman The German’s, X:2

How I hear it from Josephine Marsh.

Herman The German’s, X:3

Some combination of X1 and X2, with a few variations besides that.

Herman The German’s

From Josephine’s liner notes:
"On one of [The O’Callaghan’s Mills Group Ceol]’s many trips to the Willie Clancy summer school in Miltown Malbay, Co. Clare, we heard a German flute player called Herman playing a jig which took [Josephine’s] fancy."

Tune might have another name, though, Herman The German is fitting.
