Pipe tune

I learned this from an old recording by Willie Clancy…

I really like that hornpipe.

Queen of may

Can you give us the mane of the recording?

I think its on an old LeoRowsome recording.

Leo Rowsome. "Classics of Irish Piping". [1948]

The Queen Of May, X:2

As actually played by Leo Rowsome, the other setting is from O’Neill’s.
