I wrote this for Deb and Carl Colon, fine musicians whom I met while playing a concert with Paddy O’Brien one balmy summer evening in Cincinatti.

Emer Mayock recorded a tune with this title - is it the same one ?

I suppose it is possible…but highly unlikely as I have only recorded the tune once and that CD had limited distribution. I have played it at sessions and shown it to a few folks, but I don’t think it has gone far beyond that…yet. Who knows, maybe it has caught on somewhere.

13th bar.

There is a typo in the sheet music. In bar thirteen the first note, a lower c should actually be an octave higher than it is printed. If I typed it out incorrectly in ABC format my appologies.

Oh, and Now I see the edit ABC notation button……never mind the previous comment.
