The Leitrim Fancy

Here's a nice hornpipe.  A flute player called Alexandre suggested this tune, along with a few other ones.  If anyone requests a particular tune, I'll gladly record it as long as I know it.  My memory isn't what it was so tunes are exiting my head quicker than they are being replaced.

    I think there is also a jig with the same name.

    There could well be. I’ll have to look out for it.

    This is definitely a jig (6/8 time), and not a hornpipe (4/4 time or similar) whatsoever. The Bothy Band have a great recording of this tune. By the way I like this site!

    There’s a jig and a hornpipe going by this name. When I get a chance I’ll check that I have both on the site.

    This is known as the Leitrim Jig or Leitrim Fancy. The Bothy band play it in “A Jig and Five Reels.” Nice job with it.
