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.
I learned this tune off Téada’s album, Ainneoin Na Stoirme. They play it as a slow reel, at a gentle pace, and I think it makes the little intricacies of the tune shine. They play in F on the album, but I usually play it in D, as I’ve shown here. Aside from the transposition, this setting is similar to what’s on the album, but not exact.
This is my first time submitting a setting, so let me know if I’ve done all right.
