Open the Door

Another tune from the book ‘with Fife and Drum’ by Gary Hastings.

This tune is apparently one of the first to be learned by new Fifers.

A March, with a Hornpipe ‘bounce’ to it, to played at a dandering speed!

Open the Door

This is also the first tune on the CD which accompanies Gary’s book - Recorded at Dunminning Orange Hall, near Cullybackey, Co. Antrim 2001.
