Its simplicity makes it a good basis for variation, yet it is very catchy in its unaltered state. However, it is a wonderful tune at any experience level. Thanks for the other tune names. For me this version makes all the difference between "hating" and loving this tune. Actually, the important difference for me is The Boys of Blue Hill - Fred Hanna And His Ceilidhe Band - Irish Country Dances Vol.
1 two or three notes in the phrase that shows up in measures 3,4 and 7 not counting the pickup measure and again in the B part. I just love his playing. Does anyone know something about the origins of this name? Could it be battle related? Thanks for any help you can offer me. Bluehill is a place in Ireland.
Knockgorm; Cnoc-gorm, blue hill. There is a Blue Hill just west of Bantry, Co. Cork, opposite Whiddy Island. How very strange. Maybe American posters will know. There is an old song called "The Blue Hills of Antrim". In fact a lot of Irish counties would have Cnoc Gorm or cruacha gorma in place names and probably a few Scottish hills as well.
This is a very nice break from the norm of this perennial warhorse. I leave it to you to work out the innumerable little fillips he brought to this hornpipe.
I am playing the first setting for this tune, but I feel that my play is kinda boring. I am playing this with I Pray - Platinum Weird - Make Believe/Platinum Weird fiddle.

I should mention that I learned this version from Duck Baker. This is a good tune played after The Road to the Isles. Does anyone know anything about the history behind this tune?
