Billy Taylor’s Fancy

"Billy Taylor, with his half-brother Charlie, developed the modern, powerful toned, concert pitch Uilleann Pipes over 100 years ago."

"This hornpipe, bearing his name, is an excellent example & can be found in O’Neill’s Music of Ireland No. 1726."

I found it on the ‘Classics of Irish Piping Volume 2’ played by Liam Walsh.

This is a nice tune, Ptarmy. Thanks for posting.
