Another tune which bears the name of my hometown. I don’t know whether the tune is named after Lurgan, County Armagh or one of the other Lurgans which crop up here and there in Ireland. I’m told this is related to Bill Black’s Hornpipe, but since I don’t know the latter tune, I can’t possibly comment!

One of my favorite hornpipes. Aidan, where did you get this setting? It’s identical to the one I have but I can’t remember the source other than it comes from the playing of Bernard Bogue.

Lovely hornpipe. When playing it I found that I was led to play an ‘F’ natural at the end of bar two in the ‘B’ music. Makes for some nice chord progressions in the ‘B’ music.

To be honest I first came across it on the web somewhere and was drawn first by the name, then by the tune itself which is a wee belter!
