This tune is is an absolute classic.Everyone seems to love it. I
transcribed it from a recording made at a local session. It was written by Ivan Drever of the band Wolfstone. The original was in a diffent key (Dm I think) and may be very slightly different, being passed by ear several times.Though not strictly traditional Irish, it has become very commonly played in local Irish session around me.
Goes well with the Cliffs of Moher.
One more person to like it here!! 🙂..its a bit sad,but its quite original..btw its was posted on my birthday!! :D
I really enjoy this tune, and adore Wolfstone….it gets four thumbs up! 🙂…..well, two of them are my toes! 🙂
So *that’s* what this tune is! I heard it played by a fiddler in Cambridge a few years ago.
The real cleveland park?
my local seisiun is at Nanny O’Brien’s, 1 block away from the Cleveland Park metro stop in DC.
a ‘cercle circassien’ type of jig; takes no moody prisoner.
Just added a setting which is how I’m currently hearing Chris Sherburn playing it (Last Night’s Fun), with a slightly brighter A section 7th bar (going up to d instead of c), and some more Fsharps in the B section.
Cleveland Park - in dm
I’ve played it in this key for many years - and usually follow it with The Bustling Barmaid.

Some variations from Kinnell.
Re: Cleveland Park
When played in Dmin, the A Part resembles a jig version of the A Part of the Tam Lin Reel.

From the playing of Airdance.
Tried the tune out in Gmin, sounds reasonably well there too.
