Lizzy in the lowground

This is a great tune written by Liz Carroll and played by her and John Doyle on her great album Lost in The Loop. It has also recently been recorded by Sharron Shannon, Frankie Gavin, Mike McGoldrick and Jim Murray on their album ‘Tunes’. The notes are directly transcribed from the sheet music which she has up on her site www.lizcarroll.com. I think most of her tunes are notated there. So there are no notes wrong unless I’ve done something wrong with the ABC, which is quite possible considering I’m new to ABC. So as soon as the notation comes on this site I’ll double check to make sure it is absolutely correct.

I will be adding more Liz Carroll tunes in coming weeks.

Enjoy.

Extra bar by accident

I added an extra bar by accident, have now deleted it from the ABC, but it’s still in the sheet music until that gets corrected, if it ever does.

Posted .

by the way it is the third and fourth last bars that repeat each other by accident in the sheet music, so please get rid of one of those!

are you the same mairead concertina player I know? i.e. friend of Liz and Jackie who shared a house with us all in Donegal? If you are hello! If you’re not, hello anyway!

Yup….

the very one, hello yourself! saw your website-looks great, good luck!

Other Liz Carroll tunes….

Frisbee, would ’ the Fiddler’ s Key’ by any chance be among them? Thanks for this one, anyway.

More tunes

I will include the tunes I have got from her website on this site as I can, but as you will know we can only submit one tune a day on the site, so if anyone else feels up to it, just go to this page
http://www.lizcarroll.com/html/sheetMusic.htm and transcribe the music there into ABC. The next tunes I plan on doing are Sevens and Lost in The Loop. Henk Sorry but The Fiddler’s Key is not on her site.

Billy in the Lowground

Who was the eejit who says this tune is also called Billy in the Lowground? They are completely different tunes. Billy in the Lowground is an American Bluegrass tune which is probably where Liz Carroll got her idea for the title of this tune..

ABC in D

Love this tune so thought I’d learn it on the whistle, and in the process worked out this ABC for it:

Corrected ABC in D

Sorry, missed the first line
