Note: Tim Collins submits this gloss: “Mary McNamara plays the tune as a jig and calls it "100 Pipers." Johnny O'Leary played it as a slide [under this title]. It is also known as 'I'll Eat No More of Your Barley Bread.' The tune is apparently of Scottish origin and was known as the official Regimental March of the Royal West Kents. I reckon it was played for quadrille dancing and was easily adaptable as a polka or jig/slide.”
About the session: Alan Lomax: "Banshee stories, visited in Carna in rain, Galway, recorded Ballinakill Ceilidh Band (three fiddles, two flutes, two accordions) in evening in railroad hotel until 3am (Seamus Ennis present)." Lomax addresses Seamus in his narration throughout the tape.
