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
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 |
"Katie’s Lilt" ~ A Dorian

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