The Bluebells Are Blooming

Great tune, Kiwi. I’ve heard you play this in our session a few times. Must get out that album and learn it. Apparently this was composed by Michael Dwyer. Go here for a contents list of his book of compositions:

Mick Dwyer’s

That’s the title on Christy Dunne’s pluckin good album. I don’t know whether I should count it as an alternative title. The tune he plays before it is the Halfcrown Girl which I believe was attributed to Michael Dwyer and there could have been some confusion. What do you think?


it seems to me like the first part should be the third part and the second part should be the first part.
