Colbagh Breck

This is a 9/8 version of the Manx tune in 6/8 of the same name. The first 6/8 version, posted separately, is more or less what is played on the Island now. I have added another 6/8 version that was also collected in the 1890’s. The hop jig version here is a nice version of My Mind Will Never be Easy / Time of Day / Cucanandy (etc).

Colbagh Breck, X:2

This is the version played on Afterlight by Ímar. Their change into the reel after it is one of my favourite ever tempo changes! Theirs is based on the Manx version of this tune which looks like it’s derived from, in Scotland, "Brouges An’ Brochan An’ A", from the Gesto Collection of 1895, and in Ireland from "My Mind Will Never be Easy".
