Paddy's Rambles (Mary Custy Air)

[trad. arr. Eliza Carthy, Nancy Kerr & Ian Carr]

Eliza Carthy and Nancy Kerr (with Ian Carr on guitar) played this air as Mary Custy Air in 1995 on their album Shape of Scrape and in a shortened version as Paddy's Rambles on their 2002 compilation album On Reflection.

Eliza Carthy commented in the Shape of Scrape sleeve notes:

Mary Custy Air comes from Mary Custy via Luke Daniels, with thanks.

and in the On Reflection sleeve notes:

We know now [this] is a traditional tune from the playing of Paddy Glockin.
