The Parting - Charlie Lennon

To my ear, this is something approaching the tune that Charlie Lennon has put on his Musical Memories cd, played on the Uilleann Pipes by Michael O’Brien.

I’m not a skilled ABC writer but this is the bare bones of the tune. I’ve left out the triplets, rolls and crans that I would put in as I play coz I’m not sure how to write them in ABC!

It’s also an Air not a Reel, of course.

A lovely version of this air is on the Dunne Family CD "Legacy"
