    Wow, Jill, I really like that tune. Do you know if it has a counterpart in American Old Time?

    Wonderful time catching up on your last few weeks' posts, Jill, thank you for the entertainment! I've said it before often, and others have duly noted, your triplets are just awesome. I love to hear your Irish flow through the speakers.
    Technique, theory and fun, fun, fun. I love playing, studying and sharing MUSIC.

    It's an original tune penned by the Kane sisters so probably no counterpart to it in the Old Time repertoire. They play it in a set with another jig they wrote "An Pangur Ban", that I'm also working on.

    Queen of the triplets strikes again. Interesting progressions in this tune too. Lovely offering, Jill.

    Cheers John! I do find Paddy O'Brien's tunes to have interesting progressions in them, as do Finbarr Dwyer tunes - perhaps because they were written on the box?

    All caught up now - here's the Week 18 tune for the Tune A Week project, a lovely jig by the Kane Sisters, "An Pangur Bán" - the title is taken from an old Irish poem written by a monk about his cat. This one goes well after the Week 13 tune, "Three Deer and a Hare":

    Your usual great tone and very clean playing, Jill. You always make it look so relaxed and easy yet we know that nailing the triplets and other wee bits can be so demanding!
