The Moving Cloud (reel)

Here's a tune I was asked to play.  I haven't chanced it for a long time as the clouds in the sky above here seem to have forgotten how to move so this tune never seem to come to mind.  It was composed, I think, by Neillidh Boyle who was a remarkable fiddle player from near Dunglow in Donegal.  His birdsong impressions are equally as memorable as his tunes about his cumulus companions.

I hope the tune survived my memory lapses and general inability to play at the moment.

    Thanks, Michael! That’s another pint I own you! They’re piling up at this stage.
