I can't claim to understand this tune at all. It's just one of those flutey things that leaves me gobsmacked. Can't believe nobody has uploaded this here before now.

Well done Muireann, a beautiful rendition of Staker Wallace - it's one of my favourite airs too. Granted - playing it on a silver flute creates a different tone but I love getting as close as I can to 'wood' even though I don't have the advantage of having wood.

Fair enough, it's just that since i heard the reedy, earthy sound of a simple system/ "irish" flute there was no looking back for me. It's great though that you get to play recorder and flute in school, that way you get a good foundation to build on, in any direction/genre you choose.

True Larry, but we didn't have anything else in our high school, the silver flute gave me the desire to carry on with other flutes and whistles, I live near a reservation, where the traditional north american flute is played, also very haunting tunes, a man I know near here plays on sound tracks for  movies, I guess what I'm saying is, I love flutes in any type of music, but ITM is my favorite.

Silver flutes are for non-ITM players (and Sir Galway) ;)

I remeber playing that in high school, long before my appreciation for Irish music blossomed.

Very haunting on a silver flute.

She's a lovely lovely looking lassie and a good singer, flute and whistle player! 'Staker Wallace' isn't on my top list though..
