Lively finishing tune
A good roarin’ reel to finish a set.
The tune named as such first came to my attention on the album Providence by the excellent band of the same name. I’m sure I recognise this tune from one of the Bothy Band albums though I believe it must have been known by another name.
Fisher Street have the following version (transcribed by Adrian Scahill), which they call Seamus Connolly’s. The main difference is in the A part, where the repeat is more or less as the version posted above, while the first time is slightly different.

Hmm - still not recognisable as a Bothy Band tune name - must be my imagination.

= “The Wind That Shakes The Barley” ?
To reply to the above, this tune was never recorded by the "Bothy Band" in any of the recordings I have [ which I think is them all ].
I first heard this reel played by some musicians from Leitrim at the Lorient Festival in Brittany in 1983. I had always assumed it was a Leitrim version of "The Wind That Shakes The Barley", as there are definite similarities in some of the bars.
Great version recorded by the Mulcahys.
The Wind That Shakes The Barley
It was recorded by Planxty I was listening to them and the Bothy Band in the late 70’s or early 80’s.
New found out
I think it’s a very clever tune recycling common phrases into a really catchy melody. The Wind that shakes the Barley is in there but equally so are the Satin Slipper, the Sunny Banks and one or two others.
Satin Slipper=High Road to Galway, by the way. Should have clarified that maybe.
I posted the above clip on "Youtube" yesterday in memory of Pete Boond, who died a year ago on 13th Jan 2013 after a brave battle against cancer. Pete played mainly cittern, mandola, flute and whistles, but we used to enjoy a bit of fun with bodhran and whistle. The first reel is the version of "The New Found Out" which I mentioned above.
"Planxty" recorded "The Wind That Shakes The Barley", but never this tune, despite what anyone says above.
The New Found Out
Great stuff, Kenny! You’ve hardly changed a bit. (Of course, the lighting was poor…)
Another name for this tune
My friend James Murray tells me Fred Finn always called this tune ‘Kiss the Bride in Bed’.
