The Sanctuary

This tune follows The Black Frog (https://thesession.org/tunes/5370) on the first track of Enda Scahill’s brilliant banjo cd, Pick It Up.

Will - Thank you for the time and effort you put in to doing variations to tunes - well worth the problems I get trying to print them out!!

You’re welcome. The transcription I submitted is "as played" by Enda on the cd, so the variations are his.

Composer

Do u know who composed this tune?

I’ve lost the liner notes to this cd. My hunch is that Enda wrote it, but that could be wrong.

Yeah, it was penned by Enda Scahill. He writes: "The Sanctuary was composed in Ennis during the mayhem of the World Dancing Championships!" I think the title refers to Cruise’s Pub, but might be wrong.

I love Will’s transcription. I added a much-pared down version, without Enda’s variations, for easier reading and interpretation.
