Uncommon jig, or another name?

Uncommon jig, or another name?

I’m looking for info about a 3-part jig called Patsy Touhey’s Frolics. The only thing I found in mustard was that it’s on this recording:

https://thesession.org/recordings/display/3598

Is it rather uncommon, or does it go by another name & it’s just not linked?

A general online search just gave me several more links to the New Dawn recording….

Re: Uncommon jig, or another name?

Isn’t this based on Patsy’s rendition of ‘Gusty’s Frolics’?

Re: Uncommon jig, or another name?

It’s a tune from the O Farrell collection, Tuohey’s Frolics. Nothing to do with Patsy, who was to be born long after the publication of the tune.

It went under the mistaken ‘Patsy’ nomer on the New Dawn recording.

Yep, I thought my suggestion was probably off-beam.

"It’s a tune from the O Farrell collection, Tuohey’s Frolics…"

…where it was apparently called/spelled Tuhy’s Frolic, & had 4 parts.

Thanks a bunch Prof. !

(And MacC, thanks for the attempt. I never know which tidbit of info will lead me to what I’m looking for, so I take ‘em all….)

Re: Uncommon jig, or another name?

Hm, yes. I remembered it wasn’t ‘Touhey’ anyway.
