The Gift Of Falling

Slow air from Liz Knowles’ album "The Celtic Fiddle of Liz Knowles".
This tune has also been played by John Wynne (on a Eb flute) in his album "Like The Wind (Ar Nos Na Gaoithe)".

Before I submitted this tune, @Jiml wrote this comment of the story behind this tune: "Beautiful tune written by Liz Knowles. If I remember correctly, she fell off her horse and broke her collar bone, so she couldn’t play fiddle for a while. Not being able to play made her appreciate the fiddle even more (which turned out to be the gift of falling), so that when she finally could play again, this is the tune she wrote."

Hear Liz’s original version:
