The Day the Ass Ran Away

No, this tune isn’t about one of our less popular members leaving the in a hurry….

I transcribed this off fiddler Gerry O’Connor’s “Journeyman” cd. It’s the first in a great set of slides and goes into Lancer’s (different than those previously posted here by that name–I’ll get around to it tomorrow), and Tickle Her Leg with the Barley Straw (aka Get Up Old Woman and Shake Yourself).

Gerry and his son Donál do the set as a duet on fiddles, and they play with a well-matched swing that brings these relatively simple tunes to life.
