Was just listening…

Was just listening to ‘The Old Fireside Music’ on the first time through when I finished, got up, checked the computer and this site and look what I found! Exquisite timing and great tune, thanks for the link; FYI, seems to have linked with the reel ‘Barrel Rafferty’s’ from ‘Fireside’…?

I haven’t got that recording yet. Is this the one?

Happy to meet…

I’m sure I know this by another name but it escapes me at the moment. My version has slight differences as follows:

d |: ged BAB | GED G2A | B2e edB | dBA A2d | ged BAB | GED G2A | B2e dBA | BGG G2 :|

I’ve listened to that set of Lilting Banshee and Barrell Rafferty’s for a while now. Thanks for posting the dots to this one. I needed it!

A part also reminds me of Green fields of Woodford.

I learned a version of this from Martin Rochford in 1989

edd B2 A GEF G2

I had a name for it but can’t think of it at the minute

I transcribed this tune from a video on youtube, it’s the 2nd one in the following video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8Nw4Mr8bzA It’s a Comhaltas video with Mike Rafferty playing flute. I liked it enough to transcribe it to learn on fiddle.
