Willie Clancy’s

This is a tune which appears under the heading “Unknown” in a book of Willie Clancy’s playing named “The Dance Music of Willie Clancy”. I haven’t included the ornamentation.

A strathspey version of the tune (Willie’s Fling“) can be found here
and thanks to Terry McGee for identifying the tune.

I thought the single jig version warranted a posting on its own, and in the absence of any other name have just called it Willie Clancy’s.

Relevant discussion can be found here

I’m pretty sure the version posted under strathspeys is actually a fling version. There’s just no fling category.

I think most irish musicians tend to play flings more like single jigs, more like hornpipes, or as reels. But not all. This is one that is still regularly played like a fling… Even many musicians who say they’re playing it like a single jig play it in a way that often doesn’t fit with other single jigs….
