Purfy’s

Someone asked for this to be posted, although it’s not a tune I’d choose to play myself, I just happened to have a transcription from Aberdeen flute-player Malcolm Reavell. Composed by Brian Finnegan, and recorded on his first solo CD.

I think this is how Brian plays some of the more whacky parts of the jig (yeah, VERY subtle differences, I know, but still…)::
