Six comments

… the older (?) version …

I heard this tune many years ago in Clare. I heard it again this summer in a slightly different guise. The one shown here is the older (to me) version.

Seems funny it’s not already on here. If it is, apologies - I must have missed it …


Thanks for submitting

Am I? Or is it?

Thanks for your comment, swisspiper. I had been debating putting the other, newer (to me) version up, but was hoping someone else would come up with a take …

Emmett Gill taught this version at the 2008 San Francisco Pipers’ Club Tionol. His source was the early James Morrison recording
