Kitty in the lane

this reel is played by matt molloy on some green linnet compilation along with, comming after emm captain kelly and an unusual setting of green mountain
its a pretty sweet reel played rather quickly or slowly with lots of swing

Nitpick: Wrong mode?

This strikes me as a Dmixolydian tune with the Fnatural accidental the first time around - its sounds just fine without the Fnat. Just a bit funkier with it.

The A-part is pretty much the same, but the B-parts differ significantly…

Why the Fn

The Fn is ok if you want to do a not-so-subtle variation. But The Tune is played around here (Co Clare) without the Fn. To use the Fn would come across as a big ego thing. Why even offer the tune that way?

Agreed

Yeeah pretty sure the F nat is a mistake

I like the way Harry Bradley plays this, just the once through the parts, on "The Night Rambler’s Companion". Thats reignited my interest in this tune. Works better than a double in my opinion.

I’m with you, it works better and with more interest and sense as a single reel…

Oh yeah, I’ve never noticed that before

Still loving this tune
