Awesome, rockin’ little jig
I’m absolutely giddy at being the first to submit this one. It’s off a Nomos CD, "Set You Free"; I don’t know the author.
Note the similarity of the last phrase to the last phrase of Athol Highlanders. Going into the last turn, Niall and company replace the last two bars with
eee eee | eee eee
…which must drive ‘em wild at the live shows. Fantastic jig, I think. Enjoy!
Rory Gallagher was a famous Irish blues rock guitarplayer, who died much too young; could it be him who wrote or played this one?
The author of the tune is Scots piper Gordon Duncan.
A fine rendition
Also recorded by "Kick" on "Folkal Point: Edinburgh"
I have this as a traditional arrangement by Gordon Duncan. The setting I have is as follows:
T: Rory Gallagher’s
C: Trad. Arr. Gordon Duncan

It is not trad arr Gordon Duncan
It is comp. Gordon Duncan
Not a good version of the tune here. bhampiper has posted the right version above.
