I really love a little swing or slide in Fiddle music and it's found in Ireland.

Been trying to keep an eye on Beoga ever since I fell in love with their "Eochaid" (I should revisit that tune & maybe now learn the whole thing🤣), but today I ran across another band that kinda sounds similar - Cúig 

Love these!  (both at Elusive McSorley)

Cúig - The Lady's Cup of Tea & The Dashing White Eejit

Beoga has played more with Orchestra back up since I first listened to them - still GREAT! 

Beoga - Mickey The Pipes



Suppose I should get started on these, anyway. (lol)

Well, it's my own fault that I now have Cúig's, "The Lady's Cup of Tea", stuck in my head!  🥴 


If anyone else is interested, there are versions at thesession.org, but think I found a better Sheet Music video of it (from Ballyhoura CCE).  Ornaments are heard in the audio, but the sheet music is bare bones - and it's presented at a moderate speed! 

Don't get this mixed up with "The Cup of Tea" - totally different tune.

The Lady's Cup of Tea - Video Sheet Music



...some of these tunes just can't be ignored! 🤗
