Trip to Miriams

This was written by Colin Farrell and is played in many sessions around Manchester.

It sounds fantastic in A as well, especially on fiddle - you can get the rolls on the E then, rather than triplets or hammers on the open A.

this is also the first tune of brian finnegans performance track on his mad for trad whistle tutor

actually sorry - the second tune is trip to miriams. The first is dan breens or kevin burkes (recorded by dervish and many others)

The Trip To Miriams, X:2

Colin Farrell plays this in Amaj, and most recordings and sessions seems to prefer this key, so I’ve transposed it here for convenience.
