Gooseberry Fair

This is a great tune by Sean Ryan. I discovered it on The Singing Kettle recording by Chulrua. Patrick Ourceau plays this one solo following the tune, Singing Kettle, also written by Sean Ryan.

Typical of many Sean Ryan tunes, there are a few notes played down low that might be challenging for whistles - but a dream on the fiddle.

Enjoy!
