An apparently rare tune, learned from Michael Tubridy’s "Eagle’s Whistle album. The only other recording on the session that has this tune is John Skelton’s "Double Barreled."
It seems the more I play it, the more I like it; especially the mixing of major and minor in the B part. I believe it is from Co. Clare, but not sure; anyone out there know?
Great tune, that I’ve just learnt on whistle from Irish Flute Tunes on podbean.
It’s in D, rather than E dorian.
"that I’ve just learnt on whistle" ~ your new arrival I take it? 😉
Ya got me, ceol! Absolutely G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S it is, too.
Nice wee tune composed by Michael Tubridy himself. Michael "follies" it with another self-composition"It goes as Follies" on "The Eagle’s Whistle". This has also been posted.
Both tunes got their titles from two often-used expressions of Michael’s former Chieftains band-mate Paddy Moloney.

I found this via Spotify listening to the 2011 album Deadly Buzz (Aoibhinn Crónán) by Mick O’Brien & Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh. They follow it with the Humours of Derrykissane. Beautiful medium tempo playing on pipes and fiddle.
