Just ran across some relaxing Celtic music performed on the CELLO - means I can play it an octave higher on my 5-string "Mortimer"! 

 

This particular tune is new to me - "Milking Croon", played by Clíodhna Ní Aodáin.

@Little Prairie Girl -

Almost all of the tunes are laid back on this album, "One October Morn" by Jim Taylor. 

Here, "Farewell to Clare" is played on dulcimer and fiddle.

Anyone know of sheet music for "Farewell to Clare" - for Little Prairie Girl?

Don't know how relaxing for others, but Clannad often has easy to listen to recordings. I'm an hour into this 1:31 video on Youtube.

A nice Slow Air I ran across, "Paddy's Rambles Through The Park", played by Desi Donnelly.

Love the Modulation and Mixolydian Mode!

Paddy's Rambles Through The Park

More on Modes and Modulation.

Modal Scale Keys Thread

Lively discussion, about this being an Air, not a waltz at thesession.org, but mention none seem complete(?)  So, check some of the other archives if you're interested in learning this by sheet music.

Love the Modulation (switch between Major & minor)!

 

I'd like to look at this closer (when I have time) to see if it's just a mixolydian mode, modulated, or both.

There's sheet music for a waltz version at thesession.org, but mention none seem complete(?)  So, check some of the other archives if you're interested in  learning this.

Here's a slow tune PERFECT for this relaxing May 1st morning! 

"May Morning Dew", played by Amor Con Chordes (Bartlomiej Marusik).

Thought it worthwhile to share a couple hornpipes that are played a little different.  

"The Golden Castle" & "Bobby Casey's", by Ian Laws and Steve Mulhern. 

The Golden Castle & Bobby Caseys

Sheet music available for these at thesession.org 

Black Cat Red Heart Smiley

...guess I really like "Bobby Casey's" - it's now on my OWL (obsessed with list).

Found a Lullaby from Northumbria (I'll call it that since I've seen "waltz vs moderate air" banter)! 

"Bonny at Morn" (Ushna). 

Bonny At Morn

Pretty sure this version is in Dm - that's how I'm playing it.  VERY easy with open D & A strings - there's a B flat, but of course my tuner says A#. (lol) 

thesession. org version is Em - I like the Dm. 

TRY IT! 

Duncan Chisholm has a great video of this - I probably should've used it since it's all fiddle, but he did it in C#m & don't think anyone here would want to try that if I did.

...hope you all find this relaxing.  😊

Thought about posting this in the Celtic Critter Thread... maybe I'll just link it - sounds best here. 😊 

Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, An Grianstad, Spread na Bealtaine & The Red Crow (Trad TG4).

Help understanding the title of this pretty tune would be greatly appreciated!

@JohnG -

It took me a while, but finally found a bow that didn't make my hand want to creep up to a spot like that - really feel I have more control when my hand is comfortable on the frog.   

...she's comfortable with her left hand different, also.
