The Old Story-Teller

Tune number 924 in The Dance Music of Ireland (1907) by Francis O’Neill.

This is a setting of the tune and It is very much inspired by the playing of Kyle Borley. He is doing a great job playing O’Neill’s tunes and uploading all the videos in YouTube. He has the project of playing them all, a long process that is going to take a few years.

He says he is doing his own arrangements to the tunes and they very much depend on the instrument he plays each time (he plays banjo and tin whistle as well).

I didn’t find this tune in this website, if it’s duplicated please let me know and I will add this ABC as one more setting.

This is the video where Kyle plays the tune:
