Ten comments

I was at a session in The Maltings in York (UK) last week and a very talented fiddler played this great tune. I was bowled over with it, so here it is.

I got the abc from the JC tunefinder site. It was written by Peter Ostroushko. Sharon Shannon does a good version - she repeats the whole tune just before the ‘pour finir’ note in this transcription.

Note that the key changes to A mix in line 6 and A dor in line 8 before reverting to A maj in line 10.

Good one , domnull. [ Anything doing in York this weekend, do you know ? ]

Maudabawn Chapel + Bonnie Mulligan

This is a very successful pairing of reels (see the recording details of ‘Presence’ by Catherine Fraser and Duncan Smith) - these tunes definitely have a similar feel about them

Bonnie Mulligan

My "pour finir" comment has mysteriously disappeared from the ABC and the sheetmusic. It was at the start of line 11, to indicate that after playing the 1st 10 lines with repeats, go back to the start and play them again (with repeats), then play the last 5 lines as a ‘coda’.
