Great with Kit O’ Mahoney’s

The Maids Of Selma, X:2

Such a sweet little tune !
This is how I learned it in our local session class… I really like that tune played slow too.

Heard this version a couple of times at sessions where there were woodwind players. I found it a lot friendlier for whistle and flute players.
