I learnt this tune from Alex Burke in Adelaide Australia in the early 80’s. She had it from an old tape recording of an unknown flute player in Ireland from the 60’s or earlier.


This is a great, easy-to-learn tune that I’ve never heard anyone else apart from Alex play. It’s only taken 11 years for me to fix the one of the few tunes I’ve ever posted.
