Tom Turkington's in B Flat


Tom Turkington's performance on my fiddle that night long ago in County Clare featured this hornpipe in B flat. I don't have a title for this tune, so I pay tribute to Tom Turkington by naming it for him. Listening to the great Kimberley Fraser's performance of the tune brings me back in time and somehow makes me long for that old fiddle of mine.
