father kelly’s reel
I searched through the various submissions of this tune, and none seem to be like I’ve heard the tune played.
I’m not sure how this site works, but it seems that all the various submissions of this tune I looked at had identical ABC and sheet music. If someone submits a different version of a tune, does this site accept it, or does it only show one version of a given tune regardless of how many variants are submitted?
Also, though two Father Kellys, in D and in G, are here, the listing of recordings is identical to both. I doubt that every CD listed has both the D and the G versions on it and suspect rather that the listing shows the occurance of the title, not the tune. (In other words, ten different tunes which happen to share the same title would show up as being the same tune?)
But as I recall the version played around here goes up to high B in the third bar of the second part, maybe like this:
Or is this a different tune?
