Side By Side

Tunes by Paddy Fahey, both Paddy O’Briens, Ed Reavy, Eileen O’Brien, Seamus Connolly, Joe Liddy, and Liz Kane. Accompaniment by Daithi Sproule, Mick Conneely and Patsy Broderick on guitar, bouzouki and piano. Dancing by Nathan Pilatzke.

Date of recording/release, the label it’s on, and other information to help in finding a copy, Gary?

Brand new. July 2010. Dawros Music (their own label, I think, just like their first two recordings). I suspect you can get it from Custy’s. They’ll have it for sale when they perform at my house tomorrow night.

C Mix?

I’ve been listening and learning a jig off of the Kane Sisters’ Side by Side album that they call Eddie Moloney’s. Track 5. It’s not the tune it’s linked to on this site.

I can’t quite figure out what key it’s in. Any thoughts?


Thanks

Re: C Mix?

There are several tunes called Eddie Money’s - try Tunepal or the reverend’s search
I haven’t heard the album so I don’t know which one it is

Re: C Mix?

It might not be ‘in a key’. I don’t know the tune either, so I can’t tell you for certain; but Irish tunes are not always constrained by key signatures. If there was a drone, what note would it be? What note do you want to go to when the tune is finished? What key whistle is it easiest to play the tune on? Which Western scale contains most of the notes?

I tried the searches and tunepal. It’s really a tough one. It has mostly no sharps or flats but about half the Bs are flat. It kind of pulls me towards C but not strongly. That’s why I was thinking C Mix but I’m not convinced.
