Gan Ainm Hornpipe, off "Tin Whistles" album (Potts / Moloney)
This tune is on Chieftains members’ Sean Potts’ and Paddy Moloney’s record "Tin Whistles", made in the mid-Seventies. It will be on Track 8 of the the album’s track list as entered in the Recordings section of this site. Two tunes are listed there - Sliabh Geal G Cua Na Feile, and the set-dance tune The Garden Of Daisies. The first one just may be the hornpipe I’ve submitted here, but (not having heard the album for some time) I can’t be sure it’s not a slow air, with the hornpipe slotted in anonymously between it and The Garden Of Daisies.
Sounds a bit like amangled Sean Ui Duibhir a Gleanna
Listening to the hornpipe now on the album, it sounds familier and could be a version of Seán Ó Duibhir a’Ghleanna.
"Seán Ó Duibhir a’ Ghleanna" / "John O’Dwyer of the Glen" ~ Set Dance
I first heard this haunting piece on the Planxty live album on ‘high’ whistle, better version than this one (no offence.)
Afro Celt Sound System also has the tune with added gaelic lyrics of their own and called it ‘Listen to me’. Very, very good.
