#TuneTuesday | Rakes of Kildare

February 2 Tune Tuesday - Post Page

This week’s #TuneTuesday is a tune I recently learned to play as it was requested by a bride for her upcoming wedding. “Rakes of Kildare” is a traditional Irish jig that is quite popular in Canadian/Celtic fiddle music as I have discovered from “Googling it!”

There are many different settings of this tune as well as many different names, another one being the “Barn Door Jig.” This particular setting is from one of the old ‘bibles’ of pipe music I’ve talked about in previous posts, “Scots Guards Standard Settings of Pipe Music Volume II.”

 

Enjoy and stay “tuned” for next week’s #TuneTuesday!
