Final part of the Grania’s Welcome Home set, see part 1 for details. Apparently, part 2 (The Jig) was removed because it was a duplicate: https://thesession.org/tunes/2637
I read it was John Doherty who first recorded the set.
In "The Northern Fiddler" there’s a transcription of all John Doherty’s rendition of all three versions of this tune—march, jig, and reel.
Anyone know who Grainne/Grania was?
I was guessing it referred to Grace O Malley / Grainne ni Maille: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_O%27_Malley
Anyone able to shed some light?
