Mick Pearce (MCP) O'Carolan's Air (33) RE: O'Carolan's Air 04 Apr 19

The Betty Paret tune can be found on youtube: Betty Paret - O'Carolan's Air.

I've put a transcription below.

I had a quick scan through O'Sullivan (though I have both versions, I used the newer singe volume version with contributions by a harper on this thread!) and couldn't see it. JC Tunefinder also failed to give me anything for the tune. (For the title Carolan's Air it does return 2 copies of an unrelated tune).

I did wonder if Betty Paret wrote the tune as a Carolan's First Tune type, but without the book I couldn't say.


T:O'Carolan's Air
C:Betty Paret?
N: Source is youtube recording of Betty Paret
B: Betty Paret - First Harp Book
