I believe this is a lesser-known composition of Dave Richardson , and seem to remember it being recorded by "Touchstone".
I came across it on a tape a few days ago, played by a flute and whistle player I knew in the 70s/80s called Charlie McFadden, from Fife. Charlie’s not around anymore, but we had some good times together, so this is for him.
When the party’s over
Brian Finnegan recorded this under the name "When the party’s over" on the album of the same name.
So he did….
Well spotted - I hadn’t made that connection.
Re: The Plover’s Wing
Photos on the "Home Page" have been a bit static for a while, so I’ve posted a photo of Charlie from the late 1970s, playing with Jock Bolan on bouzouki in a Sandy Bell’s session. That’s yer genuine "Overton Low D" whistle there, can’t be that many of them still around. I bought one around the same time, for £6.50. Should have kept it, but the finger stretch was too much.
