The Swift

This is my notation of the first tune in the set "The Swift/The Swallow" on the album "As the Crow Flies" by Crowfoot. It is most likely an original composition, although I do not own the CD or their tunebook, so I do not know which band member wrote it. This is notated in Bm to be played on a D whistle or flute - on the album, however, Nicholas Williams plays a low F whistle and thus their version is in Dm. Fiddle players are welcome to transpose.

"All three band members compose, and they have published a tunebook of their original material, as recorded on their various albums.
Nicholas Williams – Vocals, Piano, Accordion, Flutes
Jaige Trudel – Vocals, Cello, Fiddle
Adam Broome – Vocals, Guitar, Cittern, Mandolin"
