Nellie Garvey’s

This is one of my favourite tunes to play on a cittern, as heard in Julie Fowlis’ album Uam in the M’fhearann Saidhbhir set. In the recording it’s played in E flat dorian, so I thought I’d bring it down the halfstep for the sake of transposition.

It’s lovely tune indeed. As far as I know, it’s composed by Éamon Doorley.
