Cahill’s Workshop

Tune number 408 in The Dance Music of Ireland (1907) by Francis O’Neill.

A very nice recording of this tune it is the one made by 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 flute, banjo and tin whistle).

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:

Having a look at ‘Irish Folk Music, A Fascinating Hobby’ (Francis O’Neill, Chicago 1910), it’s plain that this tune was named for Sergeant James Cahill from Co Kildare, a piper who was also a woodturner and made chanters in his basement workshop in Chicago.
