I am quite sure this is not the newry highwayman that solas plays.
Definately not the same as Solas’… Then again the Solas track is a song with not much instrument melody in it?
I keep hearing a Dmaj setting of this with Cnats in the B-part in my local session. That setting seems to go by the name of McDermott’s #2. I was pleased to see it posted here: https://thesession.org/tunes/5131. They’re obviously derivative of each other, but the versions aren’t compatible in a session, even if you transpose.
This is also in Bill Brennan’s book/CD from Mel Bay: "Irish, Scottish & Border Melodies for Flatpicking Guitar." It’s the 2nd tune in a medley, with Proudlock’s Hornpipe. In Brennan’s book it’s called "The Marquis of Lorne."
Are the flowers of Antrim the elder blossoms? An trom = the elder tree.
