The Humours Of Old Knockamee

Transcribed from the playing of Martin Jenkins.It can be found on Whippersnapper’s first album.

This is a hornpipe version of the reel, The Ivy Leaf.

whatever one does to it, still sounds like a reel…

I agree. But then Irish musos don’t bother distinguishing anymore anyway 😏
