Does anybody know the name of this tune, played by John Skelton at Shepherdstown, West Virginia, probably in 2012, on Eb flute? I have put it as a barndance (segueing in to the next tune which is a reel) but don’t really know what it is.
When submitting, it does say “if it has no name, write Gan Ainm”, but a temporary name given here “John Skelton’s”, is suggested as being maybe more likely to generate a correct ID than just Gan Ainm.
See/hear a video of the John Skelton gig at www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8We2WP2T6o
The segue in to the next tune, Vincent Broderick’s “Milky Way” is inspired.
None of the options suggested by abctunesearch matched well. Although, slightly off-topic, I just checked the discussion “abctuneserch.com” at https://thesession.org/discussions/20793
and found nobody has added to the comments there in eleven years. This has prompted me to admit that I do find The Reverend’s site useful. Even if I only get a correct result from about 10 or 20% of searches on what might be obscure tunes, that’s better than I can do with tunepal. Yup, thank you, I should donate … starving musician to support, it says here …
Tunepal thought it was The Spa (with 59% confidence), but that wasn’t close.
posted over two years ago and only 98 views so far, but they’re pretty good and have a CD (which includes this set) available via bandcamp, see https://thesession.org/recordings/5598
Apparently (yes, lifted from wikipedia again, sorry) Fódhla, or Fóla, "the daughter of Delbáeth and Ernmas of the Tuatha Dé Danann, was one of the tutelary giantesses of Ireland".
