Jeremy, I know there’s already another tune called Liz Carrols but this one is a jig that I got off another great album of Clare musicians called "A Clare Conscience" Track 2 second tune. The musicians are Aidan McMahon, Anthony Quigney and Donncha Moynihan and man do they play some beautiful music. A favourite at the moment.

Princess Nancy

This is on the eponymous Green Linnet Liz Carroll recording from 1988, where the notes read "for my old buddy and former roommate Nancy Leoni. A fiddler herself, Nancy’s birthday is the social event of her calendar year, when she takes to calling herself Princess and donning a tiara" a great tune and a fine CD indeed.

Name of this tune

I have ben convinced to change the name to that which it is referred to by Liz Carroll. Thanks Ceolachan fro pointing this out. Kindest regards, Kiwi

Re: Princess Nancy

Noah. I like your setting on my whistle. But is there a measure missing in line two of the A part? Just an observation. Not a criticism. Thanks
