The Two Birds In The Bush

Transposed one tone lower

In their track listing for that album, Daly and Creagh all it a hornpipe, played after a hornpipe version of The Bird in the Bush.

C natural

That tune is in Ador, the sheetmusic has one sharp too much.

G natural

two sharps too much

except for the triplets, that tune doesn’t seem to me a hornpipe.. I play it as a reel.

Two birds…..

this tune is not a hornpipe, but a reel………………….

Two Birds On a Tree

The renowned Sliabh Luachra fiddler Padraig O’Keeffe played this tune, and wrote it down in one of his manuscript books, in a form of fiddle tablature. This is my transcription from a reproduction of O’Keeffe’s book:
