This can be heard on Liz Carroll’s "Lake Effect" Green Linnet album (GLCD 1220). It is in The Fiddler’s Throne book as a jig.
Nice driving tune.
Any idea who wrote this tune?
‘twas Liz Carroll herself I believe - extract from ibiblio fiddlers companion :
ANLON McKINNEY. Irish, Jig. G Major. Standard tuning. AA’BB’. Composed by Chicago Irish-American fiddler Liz Carroll. Miller (Fiddler’s Throne), 2004; No. 2, pg. 14. Green Linnet GLCD 1220, Liz Carroll – “Lake Effect” (2002).
Heard this tune on Clare FM, in a set of jigs played by Chicago Reel, host Joan Handrahan’s choice. Superb tune!
I rather think this is a jig and not a slide.
I like Liz’s tune after it "Mind the Dresser" even better
Liz Carroll & The Session
Hello, I’m Fe from England, my dad introduced me to Liz Carroll when I was young and now I have her tune book "Collected". I’m learning slowly as I’m not a great fiddle player. However I am trying to find a piece of music she playes with two other reels Drying out and Crush cars. these are both in Collected but the third tune is called "the Lost Indian". as i have found there are a great many tunes that answer this title and none come close to what she plays. I’d love to upload some of these tunes to your site but cant quite work out ABC notation. anyway, your site is really helpful, especially the Midi and sheet music tabs, for a dummy like me- fantastic.
Hi Fiona - I seem to remember that "The Lost Indian" another title for the well-known reel, "The Laurel Tree".
I’ll check that for you.
Yeah, just checked and "Lost Indian" is definitely Liz’s version of "The Laurel Tree" — also on her "In Play" duo album under the more usual name.
