The Hooded Cloak

I learned this from Johnny McCarthy and Pat Crowley’s “Fool’s Dream” where it follows “The Harp and the Shamrock”.

Pat Crowley composed The Harp and the Shamrock (a brilliant tune!), and I wonder if he wrote this one as well. It’s so simple and compact, yet really lyrical and fun to play. Of course, this transcription is the the shadow of a memory of an echo of their performance – you really should get the album or at least this track (it’s available on itunes, which is where I bought it). They rock. Or whatever the diddley equivalent is.

In that recording I think the 2nd part ends the repeat with the 4-bar end of part 1. Not with the repetition as the sheet music here shows.
