This is the second of four tunes in the piece entitled "Jack Dawson’s Luck" on the CD "Back to Titanic". I believe the performers are Gaelic Storm, and boy do they play it well. I love this whole set of pieces they do.
Marie Walsh in Clifden,Ireland plays this tune on her album called "The Red Box".
it’s one of my favorite reels she plays!
The Red-haired Lass, X:3
Here is the version published by O’Neill in Dance Music of Ireland - 1001 Gems (1907), p. 101, no. 543, as Peter Kennedy’s Fancy.
The Red-haired Lass, X:4
This version is very close to what Kevin Burke plays at the end of the Tom Morrison’s set on the Portland Album where it is called Dipping the Sheep. It seems sufficiently different to me to consider it as a separate tune - ie Dipping the Sheep, and not The RedHaird Lass, comments?
Shearing the Sheep
O’Neill’s #735, "Ag Lomairt na gCaorach/Shearing the Sheep", in A major.
