I think it is traditional. Isn’t it?

A bit similar to Tobbin’s Favourite.

The liner notes on “Last Orders” credit Kevin Burke as the source of the tune (from the Patrick Street album which takes its title from this tune). Burke is listed in the parentheses where composers are identified, but Liz doesn’t explicitly say he wrote it, as she does with most of the other modern tunes. Can someone check the liner notes of the Patrick Street album, which I don’t own?

I think Kevin Burke penned this one, I’d have to check the sleeve notes on Celtic Fiddle Festival - Encore to be certain, but I’m almost sure he wrote it. Lovely tune anyway.

There’s something latter-half-of-20th-Century about it - I don’t know what it is. That doesn’t necessarily make it not traditional. Anyway, I could be completely wrong.

Yes, indeed, Kevin did write this tune. It is on my list for an appendix to a book that he and I are working on that will have transcriptions from his 4 solo albums. The appendix will have his compositions (none of them are on his 4 solo albums). He has written 9 tunes (some of them in collaboration with others) and a song (in collaboration with Cal Scott).

Re: All In Good Time

I thought this was ‘Coach Road to Sligo’ when I first heard it on ‘Encore’. The tunes are VERY similar.

Re: All In Good Time

I love Kevin Burke’s “Across the Black River”. Not too common at sessions although I think it should be.
