Re: The Humours Of Glynn

There’s a tune by this name in O’Neill’s "Dance Music of Ireland" (the 1001, #316) that’s different from either the ones posted here and at thesession.org/tunes/9023.

Re: The Humours Of Glynn

This tune is linked from the Mick, Louise, and Michelle Mulcahy album, "Notes From the Heart," but as far as I can tell, they are only loosely related. Maybe I need to figure out how to write in ABC notation… anyone know the origin of the tune?

I think the Mulcahy’s are playing this jig https://thesession.org/tunes/469
It was taught by Noel Hill as Cuillinn Uí Caoimh, but seems to be sometimes called Humors of Glynn.
Noel told us that the Irish means the "Cuillinn" of O’Keefe and "Cuillinn" is something like "grizzled pate" or "white hair".

Someone who knows Irish can correct the translation and/or the spelling.
If we have the correct jig, then someone can edit the link on the Mulcahy’s record.
