The Spider’s Web

A great flute jig. From the playing of Gary Hastings, composed by Vincent Broderick.

Watch the Leeds Ceili Band play this V. Broderick tune: http://comhaltas.ie/music/detail/comhaltaslive_216_1_leeds_ceili_band

In Leeds I often heard it played by Mrs. Helen Flaherty, the PA player in the clip. She’s an astonishing musician with a good stock of lesser-known modern compositions penned by Marcus Hernon, V. Broderick, Sean Ryan, etc.

This is a transcription of Conal Ó Gráda’s version (which he called the Cuckoo’s Nest) which he played at Cruinniú na bhFliúit in 2011
