Farewell To The Taliban

From the playing of Keith Murphy, Becky Tracy, Mark Roberts, and, Mark Simos.

Composed by Keith Murphy.

The last time through the flute/whistle player, Mark Roberts, octave jumps the tune, with a few minor variations in the A Part:
- "B2eg fefg" and "Beeg fefg" for the first/fifth bars,
- "fefg fe d2" for the second/sixth bars,
- "abag (3faf e2" for the fourth/eighth bars.

George Penk, Hannah Weinstein, Minhtam Tran, Maia Hoffman, Amelia Jamond, Reese Dummer, and, Jeff Kerssen-Griep, playing the tunes Hut On Staffin Island/Flying Home To Shelly/Farewell To The Taliban:

Farewell To The Taliban, X:2

From the playing of The Moving Violations.

Transposed up from Dmin.

The Portland Megaband also play it in Dmin, quite close to X1 & X2.
