The recording I have of this, for whatever reason, is about half a step fast/sharp, needing a 20 to 25% reduction to bring it into tune… This wasn’t unusual with old 78s, but I’ve also found the same with some modern recordings…
Dog Big And Dog Little
Track 1. Jimmy Duffy’s Barndances: I have separated the two tunes by giving them “No.1” and No.2" titles, making the links go directly to the tunes concerned. I hope that’s not too much of an imposition.
Not at all. I’d have done similarly but for that being, in the past, a no-no. I had tried before. I do love it when a link goes to where it should. thanks Nigel, always appreciated, by me anyway.

Re: Dog Big And Dog Little
This excellent album was released in 1989 by the Claddagh label. Dog Big and Dog Little are the local names for two hills situated between Kiltyclogher in Co. Leitrim and Derrygonnelly in Co. Fermanagh.
Ben Lennon (from Rossinver in Leitrim) is joined his fellow fiddler Fr. Séamus Quinn from Derrygonnelly and two Kinawley, Fermanagh lads - Gabriel McArdle, singing and playing the melodeon, and Ciarán Curran of Altan renown on cittern.
It’s a very gentle-sounding album and thoroughly enjoyable.
