I hope it is another self-composed tune - where have all the others come from?
Lets allow our tradition to develop naturally and not stagnate - after all we allow foreigners to play our music - perhaps their native influences may harm our tradition as much as self-composed tunes?
Imagine if someone had stopped Reavey with these types of attitudes - we would be all the poorer for that.
BTW - I am delighted that foreigners play our music and would never suggest that they ought not to!
I didn’t think much of the tune. In regard to the above link, to the discussion of new tunes, this is apposite:
“…those … who COMPOSE and submit their compositions, and nothing else, haven’t a bloody clue, seem not only arrogant, but out of touch with the tradition all together. Most of what those sorts submit is twisted and uncomfortable or downright Frankenstein’s monsterish.”
I think this would apply to the current tune. This is the ONLY contribution that the poster has made to the site.
I know my first comment was very unfriendly. But I still believe even negative feedback is better than none. Hope Michele will share a story behind this tune with us.
This is a tune composed by an italian band called “Irishields”.
