CONNEMARA SKIES. Irish, Hornpipe. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Composed by County Cavan/Philadelphia fiddler and composer Ed Reavy (1898-1988). The name Connemara derives from the name of the ancient tribe who lived in that area of Ireland, the people of Con mac na Mara. The tune name itself is taken (along with its companion piece) from a line by Yeats: "Full of Munster grass and Connemara skies."
