Composed by jowan merckx

I got the original scores from jowan himself, and put it here on the db with his permission. flook’s version is somewhat different in that they only play parts A, B and C with a slight variation to the original, which doesn’t take anything away from this tune’s quality.
i’ll post the flook version as well.

Amaj? F#min!

As flook play this jig on A-whistles, the key changes from Bmin to F#min (as the original Bmin-fingering on D-flute).

I just love really dark-sounding tunes like this one

Magnificent tune!

Thanks Flook…found you on a compilation cd with this tune paired with 2 others, equally great. Can’t get the cd player off "repeat"!
