Song For Sharon

Louise Phelan was a tutor at our Nelson based Irish Music festival Ceol Aneas this weekend past. She played this lovely jig in the final tutor’s concert. It’s got a nice modulation to the minor key in the second part…

Song for Sharon

Hi Steve.
Louise used play this tune under the title My Friend Sharon when she played with the group Fiddlesticks during her student days in Cork. What a wonderful fiddle player, tutor & lady she is.

My Friend Sharon

Ooops! You’re right- it is called that- I mis-remembered the name.
I’ve corrected it!

My Friend Sharon

Composed by fiddler Clare McLaughlin from Glasgow and named for her friend Sharon Keegan.
