Tell us something.: Hi, I am registering to this forum because I am a new whistle player with an interest in Irish, Scottish, Welsh, Cornish, Breton, and other traditional music among other forms of music and would like to learn more, be able to ask questions when I have them, and so forth. Thanks.

Thanks fellas, I appreciate it. I suppose while I'm at it, here's another one I've been interested in but am unsure of what the tune is...the one Mary Bergin is playing here at the beginning:

For what it's worth, the version of Julia Delaney that's usually played is pretty similar to this version from Joyce that predates Tommy Potts:

Also, it's hard to say which is really the original, in this case. The name clearly comes from O'Neill, but perhaps the minor version coexisted with the major (and both appear related to other tunes, like Maud Miller, Stay for Another While, etc)...

Tell us something.: Played classical flute for a long time, got into ITM a little over a year ago. Switched to whistle and I'm still a beginner, but already love it so much more than playing classical music. Signing up because when looking for advice on buying whistles/flutes most people point to C&F.

Hi everyone, first time poster here. I'm trying to identify a tune, but I'm coming at it from a different angle. Learned this tune a while ago and even had the sheet music to it at one point; on it, it was called Grannie's Slide. My problem: I can't find it anywhere. Therefore I have no audio/video to link to, but I wrote it down in abc notation which I hope will give you an idea. Does anyone know this tune? (By an alternate name perhaps?)

X:1
T:Grannie´s slide
M:12/8
K:D

I think the second one is "The Crock Of Gold" composed by Vincent Broderick, which suggests to me that the other tunes might be too, although I don't know this for a fact, and haven't heard them before. Very nice playing there.

Hi, can someone help me out with the last tuen of the set? Starts around 2:30 after the New Policeman. In the video description the tune is called Flowers of Redhill, but that doesn't sound right to me. Thanks for you help :)

Ah, they don't come easier than this -- it is indeed the Flowers of Red Hill, but maybe not the one you're thinking of.
