Fiddler Around the Faerie Tree, The
On the aforementioned occasion some forty years ago, Kathleen Lawrie played 'The Fiddler Around the Faerie Tree' for me as a set dance. Kathleen had learned the tune from dancing master Brendan de Glin from Derry. A shorter version of this tune may be found in O'Neill's collection The Dance Music of Ireland, 1001 Gems as a hornpipe called 'The Mullingar Races'. I am delighted that Kathleen agreed to record it again for this collection.
