Cuaichín Ghleann Neifín (Little Cuckoo of Glen Nefin)
The tune for the Gaelic song of the same name, also the theme for the Irish TV series Glenroe. A nice short little air, can be played like a slip jig or used as an intro to another slip jig such as The Butterfly.
The song was recorded by Aoife on her CD "Loinneog Cheoil"
And the words are here:
Thuas Ag Gort An Chornáin
is the title of a song sung by Dolores Keane to the same tune:
the words of this song were once requested by a Philippa on
it still cannot be got from the net…
Is any one you know up to the task?
also; the tune is not sung as a slip jig, or in a modified form: the a is twice as long in the 4th bar for instance…
is this a jig for jiggers or a song for singers?…
anyone got the chords to accompany this piece
