Beautiful tune heard on Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill’s "Welcome Here Again." Played as a slow air. Can’t find any other mention of it, so it may be an original.
Looking at the inside cover of Welcome Here Again, it claims that all but two exceptions on this CD (not this one) are traditional, meaning this track is traditional. I don’t know if it was ever recorded before, however.
I do believe that this is "Down Erin’s Lovely Lee". At least the notes work out that way if you play it with two flats (therefore in F Mix) rather than the one sharp given.
My mistake, I had it in the wrong key signature. Was supposed to be Eb major, but F dorian works in lieu of that. Martin Hayes tunes down to play it in this key.
Im not sure he is tuned down?! Its a matter of how well your fingers fall in all the right places at the right time.
