FEADGHAIL AN AIRIMH {CONNDAE AN RIGH} [1] (Ploughman's Whistle, King's County). Irish, Slow Air (3/4 time). F Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. The Irish collector Edward Bunting was given the tune by another contemporary Irish collector, Petrie. Bunting was sorely confused regarding this tune, however, mixing references to it up with a similarly titled tune called "Ploughman's Whistle, Queen's County," and confounding his attributions. O'Sullivan (1983) points out that this "had the great advantage of inducing (collector George) Petrie to deal with the subject of the Ploughman's WHistle at considerable length in his scholarly Ancient Music of Ireland (1855)", where he "refutes Bunting without rancour..."
