Composed by Liz Carroll usually followed by Princess Nancy, another composition by Liz. Great tunes!

Leeds Version

I’ve just checked the lastest show of radio programme "Ceili House" and found it starts with the performace of Leeds Ceili Band at the fleadh in Clonmel this summer. Nice to listen to them playing here in Japan now because I was too busy with the dissertation in Leeds while they were playing in Ireland. Here is the version of this Liz Carroll tune being played in the city, which is basically the same as what the Ceili Band played in the competition.

I’d never heard it before, but it’s a relatively well-known tune in the city. Yeah, one of many good local tunes I learned there.

Well, I mean…
