New Brian Finnegan tune

I learned this tune off a recording of a recent Flook concert. Brian said that he had set out to write a waltz but it turned into 7/8 before he was done. It’s a lovely tune.

Recorded Version

Transcription based on Brian’s *Ravishing Genius of Bones* album. It’s also played a step up in Emaj on David Kosky and Damien O’Kane’s *The Mystery Inch*, and in Dmaj on the first Guidewires album.

marga’s is brian’s wife?

Re: Marga’s Moment

I wonder what this tune is doing here. Utterly nothing whatsoever ITM about it at all, and so obviously a new composition.

Re: Marga’s Moment

So?

Re: Marga’s Moment

Most people would consider Brian Finnegan relevant to Irish traditional music whether his music is to their taste or not.

Re: Marga’s Moment

Amen, bogman.

I listened to this and I couldn’t believe the time signature. It’s perfect.
