Thanks Jeff!

Sorry Kenny, I didn’t twig at the time that that was you playing.
Very nice - it certainly sounds like a tune more for Lord Galloway than Lord Galway…

Wisnae me, “C&B”. That was my much-missed buddy Pete Boond [ RIP ] on whistle there, several years after I’d left the band. Just to prove it, here’s the 2 of us together in 1985 🙂

Lord Galway’s Lamentation, X:2

I heard this setting from Susan Ni Chomlain and Rebecca McCarthy playing it in a FB video on concertina and fiddle. They play it with a very nice feel in a challenging key for the concertina.
