This is the tune played on the Fisher Street recording.
Does anyone know if (John?) Brady wrote this?It’s one of my favourite tunes at the moment and is impossible to get out of my head,or stop causing me involuntary twitches.
Yes, John Brady wrote this
Catherine McEvoy says this is one of John Bradys best tunes. He certainly did write it, along with the great jig commonly known as Karen Tweed’s. Somebody learned that jig from KT and named it after her. Then Mary Custy learned it from KT and recorded it, and then somebody learned it from Mary Custy and called it Custy’s. But the real name of that famous jig is "Macintyre’s Fancy."
So let’s call this reel John Brady’s and leave it at that.
The tunes title is "A view from across the valley" according to the sleeve notes from the album "Notes from the Heart" by the Mulcahy family
Not exactly Adorian is it!?
