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,, 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,, 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.
