This is an Irish set dance (sometimes also played as a hornpipe), which I've learned off the Horslips version -- I was listening to their "Live At The O2" reunion album on the way to work this morning and thought I'd like to give that tune a go. They play it on mandolin, too, and it's a joy to play on that instrument. I've added a tenor guitar part, playing variously arpeggios, chords and unison melody to keep it varied.

Sheet music is at:


1921 Gibson Ajr mandolin
Vintage Viaten tenor guitar
