Kinda surprised this one isn’t already here, but my quick search came up dry, so maybe it isn’t. Anywho, although I play it a bit differently, this is the second of the Paddy Taylor jigs that would get played in a set around my local sessions. The first Paddy Taylor’s jig is this one: http://www.thesession.org/tunes/2719
Yeah I was surprised it wasn’t here as well, but I did as many little ABC searches as I could and it threw up nothing, but it’s such a good tune it really should be here. The three dotted crotchets in the first couple of bars mean you should never have to play this the same way twice! There’s millions of options for them.
Paddy Taylor’s Jig
James Kelly play this one on his "Capel Street" Tape and he also calls it "Paddy Taylor’s".
Confusion with a different tune…
On the Catherine McEvoy album, the tune labelled "Paddy Taylor’s" is a reel in D, not this tune. That same tune is on the last set on Tara Diamond’s album Seanchairde and is listed as "Little Katie Taylor."
They are both great tunes, but they are not the same.
There are at least 3 reels and 2 jigs known as "Paddy Taylor’s", and the only way to link a tune to a recording when confusion occurs is to do it in the "Comments".
