Sarah’s Ashes

This sweet tune sometimes gets played at a local session and I volunteered to transcribe it for those who would like to learn it from the dots. It’s from a YouTube video entitled Tommy Peoples Part 1:

Legend has it that Tommy wrote the tune and it’s called Sarah’s Ashes. I lowered the pitch to the Key of D which is how people play it at the session.

In the 2015 Tommy Peoples’ tutor book this tune is notated in Eb. It’s listed as a hornpipe.
