The Trip We Took Over The Mountain

What a beautiful little waltz!

This is the Séamus Ennis setting from the album Bonny Bunch of Roses, track 14, with the title "Will You Come With Me Over The Mountain". Ennis plays the parts ABABBA’, where A’ is the second half of the A part.

Here is the equally lovely Téada setting, from Give Us A Penny and Let Us Be Gone, track 10, played by Paul Finn on concertina:

The Trip We Took Over The Mountain - Recorded by General Humbert

This tune was recorded with slight differences by General Humbert, an Irish group of the 80s that made at least a couple of good albums (I don’t know if they are still extant).
The real General Humbert was a French commander who landed a force in the West of Ireland during the Napoleonic wars. They re-embarked fairly soon. A statue of him stands in, I think, Westport, Co. Mayo.

I think their version went something like this:

Re: The Trip We Took Over The Mountain

Does anyone know its lyric, or episode (back ground) about the tune?
Is there any singing recording of it?

Re: The Trip We Took Over The Mountain

Hatao, Stumpy McCloskey, a fine Singer & Fiddle player from Cloughmills, Co. Antrim was recorded singing this song for a radio broadcast, on Radio Ulster I believe, many moons ago, but I know of no available link to it.

I’m sure Len Graham would have known him well, so he may be able to help you.

Cheers,
Dick
