Harry’s Gan Ainm

This is from a session recording of Harry in Miltown a few years ago. I didn’t want to post yet another "Gan Ainm", so it’s "Harry Bradley’s" until someone comes up with the proper name. Harry has a great ear for a good flute tune!

Why don’t you email him and ask him, Kenny. He still has a profile here.

Harry Bradley’s

I’m pretty sure this tune is closely related with John Egan’s: https://thesession.org/tunes/909 The version Glauber posted a couple of years ago appears in Paul McGrattan and Paul O’Shaughnessy’s duet recording "Within a Mile of Dublin." I don’t know if this is a composition by John Egan or a traditional nameless tune associated with him.

Really nice tune, majorily digging the c natural/c sharp vibe.

At least 2 recordings I know of list this tune as "The Black-haired Lass", not to be confused with the more common reel in Ador/Amix by the same title.

Re: Harry Bradley’s

Which recordings would those be ?
