Newest Video: Shamus O'Brien Waltz - Demo & Introduction

A beautiful and haunting melody set in Bb with a bridge portion in Gm. Very danceable.

A song of this same title was published in the 1800's. Set in waltz time, the melody bears only slight resemblance to my version, which I learned from Cyril Stinnett of the Missouri Valley region. A closer rendition was published in Ira Ford's Traditional Music of America in the 1940s.
