A Scottish version playing with Capercaillie on Sidewaulk
Does anyone know who composed this tune?
ME and my band are putting a cd together, and we need to credit it!
This is also heard on Ceol Aduaidh
This is the first tune in track 11 of the above album by Frankie Kennedy and Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh. They don’t give the name of the tune though…
This is also heard on Ceol Aduaidh (2)
Forgot to mention that the credits on this album say that Frankie and Mairead got this tune from Tommy Peoples.

I find it’s nice to slide into the first G sharp in the B part
Karen Tweed has this as a hornpipe, I think it sounds nice either way myself.

The New Turnpike
This is my version of the tune, my ear wouldn’t agree with the 2nd part (too contrived and at odds with the drones) so I totally rewrote it, using fragments from the original. I hope you find it acceptable, there’s plenty of room in it for variation anyhow.
(It’s in G to keep all instrumentalists happy)

Re: The Turnpike
The tune turns up in Coles’ 1000 fiddle tunes - page 7
Re: The Turnpike
The B part sounds a lot like the B part of Uncle Henry’s Reel.
The Turnpike, X:5
I’ve added a version transcribed (to the best of my ability) from the version on the Ceol Aduaidh album, as it’s different to the settings already here.
