This is a tune written by the great Chicago bodhran/banjo player, Jackie Moran, from the Ensemble Galilei’s album, "A Change of Worlds". It is named "1923" on the album but Jackie calls it 1921. It sits between DMaj and DMix with a little D minor mixed in as well. I decided to write in D Major because of the final AM DM chord sequence makes it sound like it finally lands there to my ear.
