Source: Traditional Flute Music In The Sligo-Roscommon Style by Catherine McEvoy With Felix Dolan
Seems fairly simple and straight forward. But the last few bars, second part, second time around are different than the setting presented here. I suppose whatever works, works. But I have the ending a bit different.
Not a tune played very often. I was surprised to hear Robert Crosbie play it in Cooley’s House Pub, Ennistymon, this Christmas Eve.
I have a recording of Catherine playing this tune for a Willie Week flute class in 1980, I think it was. I’ve been busy doing a transcription, but did a check and "gianmarco" has beaten me to it. A very fine flute tune indeed. Does anyone know if it’s Catherine’s own composition ? I don’t have that CD, so have no access to the sleeve notes.
I have just bought this excellent cd and the sleeve notes do say that this is one of Catherine’s own compositions
