Tune of the Day: Planxty Mary Ellen

Lead sheet and guitar play-along available

This beautiful piece was kindly contributed to our collection by flutist and composer Anne McKennon.

Sometimes the prettiest melodies are folk tunes. I wrote this waltz in that style. It can be played straight through or the sections can be repeated in any order the player likes. It is dedicated to my first flute teacher, Mary Ellen Potter. She was a big influence in my life and we remained close long after I was her student. I premiered “Planxty Mary Ellen” in concert the day she passed away. This is my tribute to her.
