The MAWFE

The MAWFE

Picture

This is one of two tunes I composed recently for my friends Pat O’Connor and Eoghan O’Suilleabháin, two great traditional musicians who I always enjoy sharing a tune with. They released a wonderful album called ‘Conversation at the Crosses’ a while ago.
    Pat and Eoghan tend to play tunes with inherent hypnotic rhythms. I wrote this not knowing what kind of tune it is but I guess its a Fling. The MAWFE are a select group of people that come to the Feakle Festival every year to annoy Pat and Eoghan. It will remain a private joke between Pat, Eoghan and I as to what MAWFE stands for!
