Battle of Aughrim (The)

This is Micho Russell’s version of the famous march “The Battle of Aughrim”. It is not very different from the common version but I love Micho’s phrasing of the tune and thought I’d post his way of playing it.

It is very often followed by another great march, “Napoleon Crossing The Alps”, also know as “Bonnie Crossing The Alps”.
