Shooyl Inneenyn

Over on Shooyl Inneenyn’s page, it’s suggested that Shooyl Inneenyn is two separate tunes. This one appears to be the first part.

I didn’t see Shawn’s post but this is one part of the tune Shooyl Inneenyn, used for a ‘traditional’ dance of the same name put together in the 20th century.

This tune is one of several in the Manx collections used for an ‘As I roved out’ type of ballad. There are a couple of variations in the Manx material, both of the tune and the title, and many variations if you look further afield. The Manx title translates as: ‘When/As I went out [on] May Day morning’.
