BHEAN TINCÉARA, AN. Irish, Reel. D Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'C. The tonality shifts in this tune, which has east Clare regional associations, although centered around D mixolydian. Concertina player Mrs. Crotty played a two-part version of the tune that differs somewhat from the 3-part version usually heard in sessions today.

Source for notated version: piper Willie Clancy (1918-1973, Miltown Malbay, West Clare) [Mitchell].
