A reel version of this https://thesession.org/tunes/5594. The composer gave me the tune; now I’m giving it back :-)
Missed your posting of the jig version; both are nice but I would have to say that just humming the jig to myself it is quite enticing or almost hypnotic as you say. The reel is good but doesn’t seem to flow quite as well. Maybe I need to hear you play it :)
Ah, maybe my take on the tune hasn’t worked very well then…
When I get home from work I will try this on my newly acquired fiddle - yeah you heard right - I am still at the stage of practicing in complete high security privacy.
Tell us about this guy who wrote this tune. Where’s he from?
Apparently he’s from Graignamanagh, Co. Kilkenny, and is a member of the Graignamanagh Ceili Band.
