An Fonn Seisiúin is Déanaí–The Latest Session Tune

This past session we learned a tune called The Eel in the Sink–a reel in A mixolydian.  I’ll let you be the judge of whether the tune sounds like it’s title. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t. More info about the tune, ABC notation and staff notation can be found at

A couple examples. sessioners–note similarities and differences. In particular, I hear it most often played with a C# in the second bar of the B part, but you may hear different from some players.

Eel is @ 1:16, but it’s worth listening to this whole set. Fantastic musicians!
