heard this on an old record and searching for "other titles"

Dawn Rising

Here’s how it’s played by The Irish Tradition on their album Catchin’ the Tune.

They call it Dawn Rising but though it’s a very different setting I’m sure this is the same tune.

The Master’s Return, X:4

This version comes from Ceolas (book one) where it is given as The Rising Sun. The tune seems quite like the hornpipe The Last Pint (https://thesession.org/tunes/223).

Re: The Master’s Return

Heard my version in 1978 on an Irish Folk festival (No 5) here in Germany played by Liam O Flynn on pipes …

Re: The Master’s Return

Kuddel, I learned approxiametely your version from Johannes Schieffner in Proitze 🙂

The Master’s Return, X:5

I added X:5 after listening to the video in the the discussion:

James Cullinan seems to have his fiddle tuned up a semitone or the video’s been doctored. I suspect the former.
