Cailin Na Gruige Donna
Obviously not a walotz but an air, (Why can’t we add airs to the menu/)This version is similar to the McGoldrick version on Upside Down. It’s a traditional air with some lovely variations. Have a listen to his version on the CD if you can.
Why no airs in menu
As I understand it, the tunes are organized according to time signature; airs can be written in several time signatures so one category wouldn”t cover them all.
This air is also played by The Chieftains on their very first album, track # 3.
The same air is as well played by Grada on "Endeavour" track #5 Anto’s Gambit
and by Liam O’Flynn on his "The Given Note" track #13.
