To judge from his comments about the radio performance he had heard, he was already turning in his grave, pre-humously as it were, about the way other people were playing the tune. But I was very struck by the strong similarities between the version he plays on this recording and a well known tune, The New Copperplate. He spoke about forgetting tunes he composed and I have to wonder whether he was getting confused about this one! It also made me chuckle when he evoked "Beet-hoven" and Schubert as if his compositions deserved the same reverence as their works. A character, clearly.

The words that I am most familiar with to that tune are Tramps and Hawkers.

What is the moving cloud? The link goes to an Irish tune called ---- rua or ruagh, "The River Roe."

Haven't had much inclination to listen to this man's music since I heard him refer to 'jungle music' and the people who play it in a fairly racist way- he was referring to 'modern music' and musicians.

Guest , I have always found it important to put aside prejudices and just listen to the music, and judge the music , I like his playing ,however i do not find his playing of airs emotional or very sensitive, there are others who I think play airs in a way i prefer , but technically he was very good and his playing of the reel is imo good.its all subjective but getting back to ROOTS is important

Referring to 'jungle music' as it was played in the dancehalls was pretty common for a particular generation of musicians. You cane hear Junior Crehan do the same in the recent documentary aired by TG4 recently and I have heard more than a few others use the term as well. It's unpleasant to our ears and grates on our sensibilities. All I can make of it is that it was common usage and they didn't know any better.

The link in the original post doesn't work for me - I hit the "play" button, and nothing happens.

I'm partial to the "turning-in-his-grave" versions of this exciting tune. Here's my favorite .

The link works OK for me.
James Kelly and Paddy O'Brien, accompanied by Daithi Sproule on guitar, recorded what is very close to the composer's original version on an LP record titled "Spring In The Air".
2 years ago the brilliant young musician Fergus McGorman had a go at the original version on flute, which didn't really work for me, but others might disagree. His CD was called "Sweeping The Cobwebs Out Of The Sky".
I get the feeling Mr. Boyle might have been happier with those 2 versions rather than others.
