One comment

One of Carolan’s livelier tunes played occasionally in Bristol sessions. Should be taken at a jig speed, but not too fast. This is the unornamented version which may be more suited for some instruments. Here is an ornamented version from O’Neill:

Some of the runs in the B part may have to be adapted to suit some instruments, but are good fiddle writing.
