The High Road to Galway

Learnt off East Galway flute player Sean Moloney’s solo album. The notes says the tune is from Sean’s father Eddie Moloney of Ballinakill. It’s possibly a version of "The New Found Out," or "The Satin Slipper": https://thesession.org/tunes/5268

It’s a bit challenging on the keyless flute, but worth a try.

The high Road

It’s usually played a tone up and is then almost identical to the Satin Slipper.

A version which Willie Clancy also played is in The Rowsome collection of tunes.
