Eddie Tighe’s

This is from Celtic Thunder’s Hard New York Days album. I’ve always loved the tune, but have no idea where it came from. I’ve never seen it in any collections, and never heard another recording of it. I take that back, I just saw it listed in the index of Paddy O’Brien’s collection, so I guess that’s finally going on my wish list! If anyone has any ideas about where it came from I’d much appreciate it.

Hi. I wrote this tune for Co. Roscommon born flute player Eddie Tighe, on the occasion of his 80th birthday. Frank Claudy

Re: Eddie Tighe’s

Paddy O’Brien credits a bunch of tunes in his tune collections as having been composed by/ or given to him
by Frank Claudy, who he calls an enthusiast for and collector of rare tunes.
