The Cats Of Kamazeen

Here’s one for the "Flook" fans. They played this at "Celtic Connections" in Glasgow last year, and it was recorded by Radio Scotland. A real tour-de force by Brian Finnegan, making great use of tongued triplets. As usual, he plays a lot of variations in the tune, so this is only a basic "road-map" of what I believe the tune to be. I believe it was composed by uilleann-piper Brendan Ring.

Cats of Camazen

There is a tune with this name played by Brendan Ring with Sylvain Barou on the Sualtam album. I think the right spelling is Camazen and not Kamazeen.

Thanks, Robinson

Yeah, I had to guess that title, but should have checked with Flook’s last CD in the recordings section. Thanks for pointing that out.

The Cats Of Camazen, X:3

Here’s a small tweak to another setting that makes this tune much more manageable on the tin whistle. I also believe the A section here is a little closer to what Brian plays on several live recordings on Youtube. Hope this helps. This is one of my all time favorite tunes. It’s impossible to be anything but happy when you’re listening to it!
