The Bashful Maid

I learned this tune from Réalta’s album. It’s a pretty straightforward tune, easy to pick up.

Before posting my transcription, I did lots of searches for it online—here, Tunepal, irishtune.info, Google. I searched by name and abc. I transposed to G and tried again. It bears some similarity to the first two parts of Maloney’s Wife, https://thesession.org/tunes/1895#nav, but otherwise it doesn’t seem to be out there yet.

I’m kind of new to this site, so if you take a look and are sure that they’re one and the same tune, well, then I stand corrected!

The Bashful Maid

this tune can be found in O’Neill’s Dance Music of Ireland (Nr. 247: The Bashful Maid). The following tune on Réalta’s album, The Flitch of Bacon, is also in O’Neill’s (Nr. 249).Two examples that nice, unrecorded tunes still can be found in O’Neill’s.
