This lovely tune comes from Angelina Carberry and Martin Quinn’s excellent banjo and box duet playing. I’m currently struggling with it as a mediocre flute player, but will never give up because it’s one of the nicest barndaces I’ve ever heard. Does it have another name?
good one! i’ll add it to my short list of favourite barndances. and very doable on the flute, too. don
Yeah, a sweet one… Don’t forget t o ‘swing it’…
Browsing through Jerry Holland’s tune books, I found this tune is listed as "McNamara’s Band" in his second collection. I remember the notes say he learned it from the playing of Maire O’Keeffe.
