Port Chuilinn

From the playing of Ciaran Tourish. Dancers I know love this tune because the rhythm of the first section brilliantly complements the footfalls of a soft-shoe jig step.

A great modal tune, not in D Major but in G hypolydian.

Hypolydian??

It’s not G hypolydian, it’s D hypolydian aka D MAJOR.

Hypolydian?

What are you, ancient Greek? c’mon. At least advance to the middle ages and call it Ionian.
