Trip to Miriam’s

This was requested by a user on Chiff & Fipple. Liz Doherty seems to be the main recorded source, but this transcription is from the “Dave Williams Tribute Session 06” movie clip on (in the Cinema section). The tune starts at 24:13 in the video.

Since the box, whistle and banjo play slightly different settings, I’ve transcribed a slightly “normalized” version.

The sycopated section in the B part has several different variations, including |EAA FAA GAA|FAA EFAB| and |EAA DAA CA|A DAA EFAB| and |CAA DAA EA|A DAA EFAB|.

Didn’t Colin Farrell pen this one?

Yes, sorry. Composed by fiddler / whistler Colin Farrell. Credit where due!

I met Colin and Co. when Gráda came through town this year. A great band, really nice people, and mighty musicians.
