The Pleasures of Hope

I heard this on the Late Session (RTE) last week, from the playing of Liam O’Flynn, where he followed it with ‘Rick’s Rambles’, which makes a fine set - I have also put the latter tune on to the session today so hope you enjoy them - they are already firmly in my set list !

has a nicer cut than most hornpipes I like the insistant Eee’s and ddd’s…
