Good Natured Man (The)

I learned “The Good Natured Man” with my friend Gilles Tabary (flute), on one on his visit to Doolin. I have enjoyed playing this hornpipe for many years now and it is still one of my favourites, which I particularly enjoy playing with Adrian McMahon, flute player from Kilfenora.
