Bringing this thread back from the dead with a new tune to ID. I only know the A part, vaguely remembered from a recording I no longer have. The audio is me playing one of this gentleman's excellent flutes.

Thanks in advance,

Steve :)

The first one is normally called just "Tommy Peoples' Reel" (There's another one as well called that). The one you want is this one.

The last is The Guns of The Magnificent Seven. Play it to confuse guitarists. :twisted:

Farewell to Ireland
Mother's Delight (I learnt it as Mama's Pet, but there are several tunes by that name)
The Glasgow Reel (or Tamlin)

That last is one of two tunes for which I literally have to walk out of the pub. I absolutely hate the thing. Ah well, horses for courses!

You're not alone. If I can escape without disruption and the bar is in another room I have the sudden urge for another pint.

Or a call of nature.

Any excuse really.

Really? I think it's a banger.

Anyway, thanks again Ben :thumbsup:

I've got two, count them, TWO, new sets to learn this week. If I could get some ID's on these, much obliged, bigly praise, holy hand grenade and so forth.

In this first set, I know the first tune is the Kesh. Ain't no ITM'er worth their salt can't play that one. But the rest: familiar but nameless at the moment.

And the second one, 'tis some ironic that it's called the Coolies Reel set, because that's the only one I can put a name to already.

Again, thank you for your time, it is helping A LOT

Hi Stevie

In the first set, I don't know the second tune offhand, and it's hard to hear exactly what it is with everything that's going on in that recording. However, the last tune is the incredibly famous "Road to Lisdoonvarna".

Going to listen to the second set now ...
