Aka “Come Along With Me”

This is from a .pdf of the scanned manuscript of Martin Mulvilhill’s collection, p.74 Tune #45
(a handwritten note at the bottom of page indicates he got it from Brendan).

Here is "Come Along With Me" (from O’Neill) copied and pasted from Andrew Kuntz’s Fiddlers

this tune is also apparently called Paddy Fahy’s Jig — not this, I think:

The Hideout

Finbarr Dwyer recorded this as The Hideout.

The Hideout

Finbarr Dwyer recorded this as The Hideout and it’s also in one of Breathnach’s volumes (I think its No.3) under the title Paddy O’Brien’s which I WON’T stick in as an alternative title (ahem..!). :)

As played by Steph Geremia on "The Open Road"

Thanks Kenny! All well here. Hope the same with you. Off to Milltown, I presume? If so, have a good one! All the best, Tim
