Jean Marie, I read your Foxhunter's blog. Pilib An Cheoil was originally the opener for the Kesh Jig/Ten Penny Bit set. I remember the first time I attempted to play it in public at the annual Otto Roeser Park fund raiser at the First Presbyterian Church. It was pretty rough going. I got the 2nd tune, A Dubh An Gleana, from an Altan CD.
I started smiling when I began to read because I was aware of just how the set evolved. A long and twisted path for sure. I think you got it prrtty close with only a few embellishments to add along the way.
What others say ...
"When they sing, they open your heart and soul."
