Another Felix Burns tune as played by Peter Wyper on Regal G6983 (recorded circa May 1912). It is described as a two-step. The order it is played on the record is:
Intro - A - B - A - C - D - C - Intro - A - B - A
I hope you don’t mind my posting a couple of Felix Burns tunes. They’re a bit removed from traditional Irish music, although they are what a lot of our grandfathers and grandmothers listened to, alongside more traditional dance music.
Felix Burns Week continues ~ ;-)
I guess I’m going to have to find something other than a two-step for the next entry… Thanks for the addition Nigel, much appreciated.
For the future, I suspect you’re familiar with Ronnie Cooper’s tunes ~

I forgot to say that Peter Wyper appeared to play this in F major; I transposed it to G so that fiddlers etc could reach the lowest note.
Yes, F seems to have been a popular key…
