Apples in Winter

Written by Paul Conlon. Posted in Belfast Trad Advanced Level, GSOTM Intermediate Level

Apple in Winter is a lovely 2 part jig in the key of E minor and the first tune of a set of three which we will be learning this term. The jig set in question will be ‘Apples in Winter, Scotsman Over the Border, Langstrom’s Pony’.


Thanks to Breandán Mac Gabhann for providing the video for apples in winter.
