Subject: Tune Req: Smiling Little Lass (W. Owen Roe/Foggy?)
Hey, does anyone have the album "Celtic Voyage" which includes an instrumental titled "Lament For Owen Roe O'Neil / Foggy Dew" by Neal Hellman & Friends? This particular track is not available on You Tube, but other versions of both those tunes are. Thing is, a major part of this is a tune I know as "The Smiling Little Lass," which, after many years of collecting and listening to music, I have heard only ONCE, in a songbook of my mom's. The other two tunes in the title are ENTIRELY different! If you sign in to one of these services which play music based on your likes (I heard it on Pandora), you might get to listen, but places that sell it give only a 30-second snip and the part that I know as "The Smiling Little Lass" doesn't come in till about 1:46. Just wondered if anyone knew this tune by any name and why it might have been identified under the titles of these other two tunes which are completely different (although the Lament has similarities.) I do have a PDF of the songbook page but I don't see any way to post it here.
