Silence !!!

In 38 tune books, and nobody has a word to say about it ???

The Composer

Several sources attribute this tune to East Galway fiddler Paddy Kelly.

"In 38 tune books, and nobody has a word to say about it ???"

Okay then: the D in bars 2 and 5 ought to be a C!

In 48 ~ … and counting… So how about this, a different key and take on the whole thing:

Damn, I forgot about this. I like that take in D Dorian, moving into a kind of d minor way for the B-part, fun…

“The New Custom House” / “Paddy Kelly’s”

The following first came to mind in E Dorian, where it can also be played…

Here it is with Jeeves Jones earlier few suggested corrections made, the more usual way with it, those low Cs ~

Learnt this tune off a CD of Irish Fiddle music and would love to know if anyone else knows it by another name. I love the change from F sharp to F natural; it makes this tune very unique! And it’s fun to play!
