Tom Turkington's in A Major


Here is another tune from the playing of Tom Turkington of County Tyrone. I searched for its name, and I asked a number of reliable sources for a title, but I have come up empty-handed. So, what better name than 'Tom Turkington's in A Major'? Tom's playing that night, many years ago, has kept the tune alive, as does Kimberley Fraser's playing here, on fiddle and piano. Thanks, Tom and Kimberley.
