Seara, thanks so much for posting this tune! Every time I’ve listened to Otherworld, I’ve told myself to learn this one but never quite got around to it. Now it will be much quicker with the notes in hand. Great post!
Thanks a million seara,
I want also to learn this tune since one year !!!!
Should be credited to Kevin Crawford
Just a minor note, I’m pretty sure Kevin Crawford is the composer of this tune. You can find the "official" version (at least as of this writing) at http://www.lunasa.ie/notes.htm .
They mention a whole tunebook, but alas nothing yet.
Yes, Kevin did write this tune. Donogh says that he named it after his dog!
BTW — that tunebook is out now, and has been for a while. I have it, and it’s nice. Donogh wrote it, and he has something to say about each of the tunes, which I think is interesting, like who wrote it, or where they learned it.
I’ve been thinking it’s the name of Kevin’s wife. His dog’s?
No, Kevin’s wife is Tracy Crawford. I wonder if he has written a tune for her, or if he’s just written one for his dog!
I want to write a nice tune for my girlfriend, but where is she? Can I find a nice girl soon?
I play it in this version:

I just love this tune, just learnt it for the pipes/whistle alongside a fiddle player, we knock out some nice harmonies on this one as well.
