The Killarney Boys of Pleasure

An Irish fiddle tune I'm currently enamored with enough to have learned it and will attempt it with others at a monthly session Thursday night (Oct. 11, 2012). The version below by Lunasa, from their 2001 album, The Merry Sisters of Fate, is not performed in the traditional AABB dance format which makes it more interesting to me and the listener. Hope you enjoy it!

I love your choice of music. This piece is interesting from many points of view but one that comes to mind is the roving progression as the melody weaves over the chords. It is very interesting and at the same time mesmeric in the form as it keeps turning around upon itself. Good choice.

Very interesting to hear it so slow. Nice listening!
