Munster Grass

Found this on the ‘Inis’ recording of 1996.

The group in turn lifted this tune from a Kilfenora recording of 1995.

Just noticed how many LPs this tune is on so I’d be surprised if it has not already been posted here!

Is it here in a different key perhaps?

Having seen the number of albums this tune is actually on, I’d be very surprised if it hasn’t already been posted here!

Perhaps this is not the usual key for it?

An Ed Reavy composition.

This was composed by the great Ed Reavy and is in his collection and you got the key right Ptarmigan.

Thanks Cos.

Don’t know what happened to the 3rd Bar of my ABC:
^A>^GA>B c>BA>=G

Should of course look like this:
A>GA>B c>BA>=G

Sounds like the piano player on the MIDI file has been partaking of some of that Munster grass! Don’t bogart the (horn)pipe!

This is ptarmigan’s transcription, with those wacky sharps removed. :)
