The tunes are The Lilting Banshee and The Mug of Brown Ale, to be covered this coming week. Both fairly well known traditional Irish jigs. Our version of The Lilting Banshee is one of many that exist and this one is sometimes known as The Killaloe Boat, named after a ferry crossing over the River Shannon at Killaloe, Co. Clare at the mouth of Lough Derg.
Resources for these tunes can be found on the SMG page at The Flow.
Improvers Fun Flute have been looking at strathspeys. In addition to The Duke of Gordon’s Birthday, we have now added The Ale is Dear, first as a strathspey and in the forthcoming class, as a reel.
Resources for these tunes are up on the Fun Flute page on The Flow
