An Dro

Heard this on Na Rosai’s album, Na Rosai. Haven’t seen it posted anywhere, so this is my novice attempt at a transcription. Suggestions are welcome.

Yeah, that’s a common one, I heard it many times in Fest Noz.

An Dro, X:2

That’s how I usually play it. My advice (for flute/whistle players) would be to imitate the style of Jean-Michel Veillon. Breton music focuses about articulations, phrasing and variation. The tune is simple but can sound complex when well executed.

There is another An Dro that looks to have the same origin while being a different tune: https://thesession.org/tunes/2828#setting18514

@rgbuzz: based on what I hear from the youtube link posted by Gian Marco, I would write it like that:
