Queen of the Fairies (Hornpipe)

{short description of image}

This is a Liam O'Flynn rendition from his album, Out to Another Side. This tune has the high D on the chanter....a very difficult note, perfectly executed by Liam.I saw him play this live and he told how his teacher gave him a shilling the first time he managed to play the tune .Of course you can easily substitute another note or notes for the high D.You could play the back D instead and/or a high A. This tune is coupled on the recording with another hornpipe, Callaghan's .
