Composed by Quentin Cooper. The A part should probably be transcribed here an octave lower, which is how Yvonne Casey plays it in the Ceili Bandits’ recording, and which contrasts very tastily with upper register for the B part and a different tone used there. However, it’s transcribed here for the benefit of those who might not be able to go below Bottom D. Sorry if anyone thinks that’s rather missing the point of the tune - just play it as low you can go. It might also help if you can find a rhythm section like the Bandits!
