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’.

Longest name

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:
