Transcrtiption: g.m.p.

Submitted in response to a request.

I think this is a very flute setting.
Please someone post a fiddle setting.

Thanks for this good transcription !

Thanx for this transcription, that was the one I was waiting for ! I first heard this tune when someone gave it to listen for the bodhran playing…… but the flute playing was great as well !

Question

Is it a traditional tune??

Named after a famous bar in Edinburgh?

Barry wrote this tune himself. After a Lough Neagh legend, a treacherous current called the Three Sisters.

Three Sisters

This is a fantastic tune, I play it slightly different, here’s my abc.
