Sixteen comments

From Liam Bradley’s 100%

This tune is from track 12 on Liam Bradley and Damian McKee’s 100% Pure Irish Dance - The Show -

Hornpipes 113

this is the first tune in the track - the second tune is a very mysterious hornpipe.

Has anyone ever heard this hornpipe or know it by another name?

Thanks,
Tedrick

very mysterious sounding — I’ll add the B section to this hornpipe asap — anyone recognize this?

E Major ~ ???

That seems a bit odd… Is it possible, and it isn’t uncommon, that all tracks are a step sharp? Sometimes they do that on purpose, record a track in D and then boost it and the key signature to a faster E? Finding a tune that is really played in E Major as a matter of general practice is very rare…

Weird ~ I only found one MP3 fragment online and it was HEAVILY Synthesizzzzzed… I tried to see if I could find a recording of your hornpipes, or a fragment, but no luck…

I look forward to the rest…and a name if at all possible. You could always send Liam Bradley a query, and maybe even find a composer attached to one of these hornpipes?

Maybe someone with a MySpace account will drop him a line and ask for the titles for this set? 😏
