Hip Agus Hop
Someone left a request for this - I think it’s all about right except for the last line which is made up a bit (was doing it from memory, not with a recording to hand).
It isn’t really a Mazurka, but then I wasn’t sure what else to call it. Fast waltz, maybe? Good tune anyway.
Mike McGoldrick follows it with the Butlers of Glen Avenue on his "Fused" album.
…for transcribing the tune. It’s really great! Composed by Donald Shaw of Capercaillie.
If you want to see it played live by Mike McGoldrick, just have look at http://www.kerrywhistles.com/ ,
section "downloads" > Artist "Mike McGoldrick" > Clip "McGoldrick and Friends: Cambridge"
I like the name!
Update per McGoldrick’s playing on “Fused”
Sam, many thanks for the transcription. I’ve updated the end section per McGoldrick’s playing on "Fused" - bars 29 & 31.
Best - Bill

I hate the name! I get embarrassed whenever somebody asks me what it’s called. I have to say it really sarcastically, then laugh along with them and say, "yeah, stupid, innit…"
Why? It’s a great name.
Played by the composer - on “Youtube”……………..
…………….and Michael McGoldrick. From 1999, I think.
