The Souvenir

The great Sligo fiddle player James Morrison recorded this hornpipe in New York on the 21st of January 1935.

Paul Brock thought this "…an unusual and rather intricate piece……".

It is on track two of Paul’s ‘Mo Chairdin’ LP.


Thanks so much for posting this tune!….. I love happy arrpeggio-ish horpipes like this.
