It Goes As Follies
Wonderful little tune with a rather interesting name. Perhaps someone said to a musician "How does that reel go? Play it for us!" and he replied "All right, it goes as follows…."
That’s my hypothesis anyway.
Nearly Right — Composer Credit
This tune was composed by former Chieftains flute & concertina player Michael Tubridy. The tune got its title from a characteristic expression of Michael’s former band-mate the piper Paddy Moloney. And indeed I have myself heard Paddy use this expression a few times at Chieftains concerts.
