Haven’t put any tunes in here for ages - learnt a good few over past year or so that I don’t think are here but may be they are in diff. versions/ keys. Anyway here is a jig that my older lad learnt off Colm gannon at Willie Week. Catchy thing, think it’s related to Mist on the Meadow etc. Colm probably had a name for it but those sort of things go in one ear and out t’other!! As long as the tune stays there, I suppose we should be glad:) Put it here in D maj as I think it resolves to a d but maybe it’s B minor - I’m hopeless at keys. I must sit down and write out the others.

The Humours of Glynn….

is the title Colm Gannon has for this tune. Strange, I recorded the concert of C. Gannon, Jesse Smith, and John Blake last night, which was originally broadcast on rte radio last winter, and was listening to them play this jig this morning!

The file is still available: http://dynamic.rte.ie/quickaxs/209-rte-latesession-2007-12-30.smil (the jig set starts around 7:40)

Well thanks for that Slainte - incidentally Colm Gannon plays what I think, is quite an unusual style in his left hand playing of the box. Sort of like imitating the regulators of the pipes.

Not the same tune obviously but the seeds of a possible mix up in titles. Anyone got the Mulcahy CD’s to check what they play?

Re: The Humours Of Glynn

There’s also a tune by this name in O’Neill’s "Dance Music of Ireland" (the 1001, #316) that’s different still.

Re: The Humours Of Glynn

And to add, the Mulcahy version is none of those mentioned above but is over at thesession.org/tunes/469 under another name. According to the Mulcahy CD liner notes, this is from Padraig O’Keeffe.

Second tune, Track 3 from Peter Carberry’s "Traditional Music from County Longford" (with brilliant assist from duaghter Angelina (banjo) & others).

The Green Meadow

From O’Neill’s 1001, #266

Re: The Green Meadow

Ah, right you are–that one didn’t come up in my searches as it’s just different enough, but it’s clearly the same tune. I’ll ask for this to be merged.
