Someone asked me for this tune a while back and I completely forgot to post it - apologies.
The tune comes from ‘The Gunn Book’ and is reproduced in the ‘Hidden Fermanagh’ collection. The transcriber/compiler note that ‘We have not been able to find a reference to this unusually -titled tune in any other collection. It has a Scottish feel to it and may well have been the air to a popular song, presumably a comic song.’
Similar to "Lanigan’s Ball" ?
a Monty Python sketch? :)
It’s nothing like ‘Lanigan’s Ball’, swisspiper.
It is not Lanigan’s Ball, but some bars could be verions of the equivalent one in the other tune, but I have to confess, some bars are 100% incompatibel - Sorry
