Six comments

smoking tune…thought they (the lads) played it fast on the record, then I saw them play it live, just shy of train-wreck speed…blew my mind! good one to play on the Bouzouki. thanks "Errik"

This one’s murder on the banjo, especially the 21nd bar

Pronunciation

how do you pronounce ‘Siun’s’? - sort of ‘shoons’? or shuns?

Goitse

Added the version from Goitse’s album tall tales where it comes as the last tune on the album. But in D here for us pipers.

All the best
Simon.

Siuns

Composed by Ciaran Tourish, featured on Altan’s "Another Sky". A circular tune, fun to play, with the sustained A chord feeling in the 3rd part, resolving again on the repeat. Possible translation: exhausted person- ?
