O’Neill’s Cavalcade, or ‘Marcshlua Ui Neill’ in Irish, is an ancient military march from the O’Neill clan of Ulster (Northern Ireland). It is unique in its form, with a first part, a ‘bridge’ and a second.
Made popular by the Chieftains in the 1970s, and it is from the Chieftains’ recording that I was inspired to play this great tune. It is in ‘jig’ time (6/8) as are all old jigs, and should be played with vigour and ‘bullishness’!
The Chase is a second tune by myself to complement the first – played afterwards, with a ‘fanfare’ at the start and finish of the set.
