I was getting ready to learn this and here you have already posted it.

I suspect this is a Gmaj tune recorded using C flute or whistle.

Yep, slainte you are right on that. I think Kevin got a C Flute pretty recently as he has never used it on their other albums.

I remember his C flute was stolen around two years ago.

Well, he had one in January when I saw them, and yes they played this set (this and Ivory Lady).

BTW, this is a composition by Kevin himself, and it is SLOW.

I have a jig of the same title - completely different tune.
I’ll post as soon as National Science Week is over.

This is one of the most beautiful tune for flute!!
