I BELIEVE this is the second tune in the second set off of Lunasa’s recent recording "Redwood." Excellent tune. Whenever I pick up the flute, that tune, since I learned it, is usually the first one to come out.
Those first three bars almost sound like ‘The Cock and the Hen’.
It’s by Junior Crehan.
Is this the tune with the longest name on this site ???!!!!!
Yes indeed it is!!!
i believe this is the longest name on this site!!!! its so much fun to say!!
This is how I play it. I got the bulk of this setting off Sean Ryan at Willie Week 2009, and due to the amount of booze I consumed that week I may well have mis-remembered at least some of the setting. I do like it this way though, even if it’s not exactly the way Junior Crehan composed it:
T: I Have A House Of My Own With A Chimney Built On Top Of It
R: slip jig

Re: I Have A House Of My Own With A Chimney Built On Top Of It
the very first couple of bars I include the drone A string…ads character to it….fun title ….fun tune…
I Have A House Of My Own With A Chimney Built On Top Of It, X:3
This is basically the Lúnasa setting, albeit in the (apparently) more common key of A dorian.
