Irish, Reel. A Dorian (‘A’ part) & G Major (‘B’ part). Standard. AB (Breathnach/CRE II): AA’BB’ (Breathnach/Man & his Music). The title probably refers to a County Leitrim born flute player named Hugh Travers who was a member for a time of the Dublin Metropolitan Garda Ceili Band, along with whom he recorded some 78 RPM sides in the 1930s (Philippe Varlet). There is a jig version of the tune derived from the reel. Sources for notated versions: flute player Matt Molloy (Ireland) [Breathnach]; piper Liam Ó Floinn (Kildare) [Breathnach/Man & his Music]. Breathnach (CRÉ III), 1985; No. 99, pg. 51. Breathnach (The Man & his Music), 1996; No. 3, pg. 102. Mulligan Records LUN 004, "Matt Molloy" (1976).

This is a dead common tune and is in the database twice already https://thesession.org/tunes/1518 and find link to the other one in the comments. PS what is going on with the key? Surprised that this has been allowed to slip through the net.

Z: Transcribed by Paul de Grae ~ K: G Major

It is worth noting Hughie Travers’ works quite nicely as a jig (see A Touch of Clare by Kitty Hayes for example)

Re: Traver’s

Is it just me ? I posted above a year ago that there’s no sheet music accompanying this. Still not seeing anything, yet it seems to be in 7 tunebooks.Where did it go ?
