Katie’s Lilt – Hidden Fermanagh Vol 1 Track 11

This tune follows Top of the Hill on the Hidden Fermanagh Vol 1 CD.

I learned this from a broadcast of Thistle & Shamrock. I’m going to have to get this album – and Volume 2 is out now, I see.

Apparently John McManus got this tune from the lilting of his mother, Katie Gunn.

I’m not the best at reading abc, but this tune is definitely in A minor

Thanks, Sharon

I changed the ABCs but the dots will probably have to stand.

On ABC notation, here ~ | =gfg G3 | ~ you do not need the ‘=’ natural sign, the bar line immediately returns things to the norm, so this is actually correct ~ | gfg G3 |

Ah, thanks ceolachan…!

Ok, I think I’ve got the key signature right this time… and I’ve deleted the unneeded natural sign.
