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.

I was just looking for it, now it dosent…now it is!…just a refresh
Really nice tune GM, but then I seem to like all the ones you submit!
What is interesting about this tune is the fact that although it is in Dmaj none of the phrases emphasise the D-note - most begin with an A or F or E. Also that last phrase at the end of first A and the end of B sections has a really different feel to it.
A.k.a. Satin Slipper?
On "Keelwest" by Paul McGrattan, he plays a tune called the "Satin Slipper" at the end of track 1. He also taught the tune at a workshop this past summer and the tune seems close to the one posted here. Can anybody confirm or deny if they are the same tune or just from the same family? If they’re indeed the same tune, I’ll add Paul’s setting to the comments here.
New Found Out Reel
Can´t remember where, but I´m fairly sure I´ve seen this tune named as above on some or other recording. I know it´s on Fisher Street´s cd, where I think it has yet another name. James Kelly recorded a completely different tune as "Aggie White´s".
The New Found Out Reel
This tune is in fact listed on this site as The New Found Out Reel - see above
Can only be the same tune
I´ve just been listening to Paul McGrattan´s "Satin Slipper". It´s the same tune, in a simplified version - played very fast!
"The New Found Out Reel" ~ in ‘double’ time:
32 bars instead of 16…and other names too…
The link previous is to a ‘single’ version, 16 bars instead of 32…
One of the very great reels from the only Fisherstreet’s recording "out in the night", music from Co Clare. My favorite.
A Sean Ryan composition

Certainly not. This is a reel, not a jig.
For sure it’s a problem. In the case of Paddy Fahy for ex. who never named his tunes, people can believe he wrote only one tune in his life! 😉

Yep under a wrong name, you right… Aggie Whyte’s begins BGAF DG~G2 ABcA d…etc.
Anyway I should not have posted it with all the versions already here… but I did not find it on the advanced tab. sorry sorry 😏
Well, finally I think that if not the best I’ve heard, that version is quite natural, and maybe also the most played in most places.
But as usual, I don’t have the truth. 🙂
The Silver Slipper
In Ceol Rince na hEireann vol 5 from Denis Murphy, who may have known it from Paddy Killoran. Not a Seamus Connolly or Sean Ryan composition in any case.
Killoran’s "Silver Slipper"
This one is in Ceol Rince na hEireann vol. 5 from Denis Murphy as "The Silver Slipper." It was played by Paddy Killoran.
= "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’.
The New Found Out, X:3
Fergal Scahill’s version.
The New Found Out, X:8
This is my take on the version on the Mulcahy’s album - Notes from the Heart
Sounds like the version played at the Brisbane Trad session
