"Siúil a Ruin" ~ the air I first heard and learned this song to…

Other lyrical associations existed too…

"Is there anyone who knows what this means or where I can hear a recorded version of this tune? It is one of the first ones I ever tried to play on fiddle, but I would like to hear how it is played traditionally, if it is in fact played by anyone. Thanks"

The subject of this air came up recently in this discussion…

"Siúil A Ruin" ~ K: A Dorian

Note for clarity: I have given these transcriptions with the Chorus first, Verse second…

"Shule Aroon" ~ another air

This is different enough to warrant it’s own space. Here are some dots (ABC’s also) for it first from "The Digtal Tradition" ~ Mudcat:

Here’s my transcription:

This would make a lovely march… I had to hold back on doing that to it but some of it may have leaked through…

Recorded version

Reeltime does a lovely version of this tune that I just discovered. I assume it’s on Green Linnet (not sure which album, sorry)

It’s actually on their self-titled.
