I used to play in a ceili band in Reading and shorltly after I joined I started playing this tune when warming up until I was politely asked not to. When I asked why I was told that the band had had two audience deaths during their time and both had occurred whilst this tune was being played.
I THINK NOT!
Isn’t the first part of this tune used in a children’s song?
Yes. Something about a baby bumblebee.
Its a fun song, and The Chieftain’s version on Further Down the Old Plank Road is quite a good one. I have been trying to play it with their ornamentation for a while now.
Ah, that’s right…
Man, I hate when people use tunes for stuff like that, because I have a hard time appreciating them then…
