The Flowers Of Brooklyn

Nice tune,one of my favourites.Can be played in quite a flowing style.Occassionally played in session.

Let’s not forget to give credit to the composers.
Accordian player Billy McComiskey composed this tune.

Liscannor — at Joseph Mchugh’s Pub

I’ve known Billy McComisky for about twenty years. We have the same home town. I finally learned this tune a couple of weeks ago. I’d always loved it but thought it very difficult. When I finally learned it, it turned out to be lovely and easy. I’d never even heard it in a session. A week or so ago Frankie McEnnis, a banjo player living in Liscannor, asked me if by any chance I knew Flowers of Brooklyn. I turned to him in amazement and told him I in fact did know it, having just learned it. He pulled a whistle from his inside jacket pocket and we played it with each other. It was the first time either of us had played the tune with somebody else.
