Maybe somebody out there will know the name of this. I got it off a tape that just said jigs & reels.
Is this one of Paddy Fahy’s?
This is the Whistler of Rosslea, a Reavy tune. It’s already here but this is the more usual key.
Oh, sorry about the duplication. I checked for these note combinations, but forgot to check other keys.
Thanks for the name, too.
The Kane sisters refer to this as The Whistler of Rosslea, rather than FROM Rosslea.
John G. Walsh calls this tune Burke’s on his "Galway Rambler" album. Maybe he learned the tune from Joe Burke because he does play a few of Joe’s tunes/versions of tunes on the album.
Go here for Martin Hayes’ dorian version https://thesession.org/tunes/304
Whistler Of Rosslea
X:2 as actually written out by Ed Reavy; I included marks where Paddy Carty and Conor Tully played F# instead. Joe Burke plays much the same setting on his recent instructional book/CD, and likely learned this second or first hand when he was in NYC. They dispense with a few of the legato triplets here and there too.
That Martin Hayes "setting"…ugh, no comment. Well, I guess this is a comment…
Re: The Whistler Of Rosslea
Mary Custy plays it on her album "Barr Tra" with Quentin Cooper and calls it "The Hidden Ground".
