Kilfenora Jigs (Number 1)

This is the first in the series of three jigs made famous by the great Kilfenora Ceili Band of the fifties and is also sometimes called Paddy’s Return (See also Numbers 2 & 3) as ideally they should always be played together.

Kitty Lie Over?

Mick O’Brien and Caoimhin O Raghallaigh play this as the title track on their new album Kitty Lie Over.

“The Kilfenora Jig” #3 ~ 2-parts

#3-of-3 in Kilfenora Ceili Band Set, 50’s
~ also known as "Paddy Murphy’s", "The Steamboat Quickstep", "Thomond Bridge", "Uncle Jim’s Jig", etc…

"Uncle Jim’s Jig" / "The Steamboat Quickstep" ~ 2 parts AABB
~ also known as "Kilfenora", "The Kilfenora", "The Steamboat March", "Steamboat Quickstep", "The Steamboat", "Uncle Jim", "Washington Quickstep", "The Washington Quickstep".

Note: the first link directly above, #947, is 2-parts but contributed in the order BBAA… #6083 is given as AABB because that is the more common order of the tune parts in historic transcription as I have it so far…

Not the “Frost is All Over”

The "Frost is All Over" is an entirely seperate tune.

Hey folks first time posting a tune on here. I learned it from a recording of a session in Galway. I’ll be posting the other 2 tunes from the set in hopes they will turn out the same.

Thank god I finally found this tune, I’ve been looking in Frost is All Over because I joined a band that sings those lyrics with this tune.

Laid back take

2nd part: …gfg eag | fed B2d… ?
Replace by …g2f efg | fed B2d… !
It’s not about the notes, it’s about attitude!
