Playing in the Rafters

I don’t know much about this tune. I learned it at a session and I was told that it was by Aaron Olwell. It’s a nice jig.


Great tune and easy to play. Are you sure there are no repeats? I think it sounds more balanced with both the A and the B-part repeated.


They are repeated aren’t they??

Another name and key

I learned this tune at Lark Camp 2011 as "Up in the Rafters" and it was in A minor. It was mentioned that it was by Aran Olwell and that it was on a CD by the name of Roaring Mary.
