Back to Michael Coleman's Waltz
MICHAEL COLEMAN'S (WALTZ). AKA - "Diablo Viennese Waltz." Irish, Waltz. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune is called "Michael Coleman's" on Seamus Tansey and Joe Sheridan's Outlet LP entitled "Sligo Ceili," although the great Sligo-born fiddler Michael Coleman did not record the tune commercially, says Philippe Varlet. It appears as "Kevin's Viennese" on Joe Ryan & Eddie Clarke's album "Crossroads." The late accordion player Jim Coogan reported the tune was a great favorite of box player Joe Mills', who called it "Diablo."
