Tim Fitzpatrick’s

I was hoping to find a version of Tim Fitzpatrick’s in the archives, and noticed that
it wasn’t yet submitted. A recording of the tune exists on the Conway/DeMarco album
The Apple In Winter, but it hasn’t been transcribed onto the session.
I searched my tune library, and found a version of it transcribed by Bill Black from
The Bill Black Irish Tune Collection, vol.1, p.36, #69
“A rare Sligo tune transcribed from the Brian Conway-Tony DeMarco record.
Tim Fitzpatrick was a box player and contemporary of Coleman’s.”

In the interest of full disclosure, here are the additional fields that should go with the abcs:

B:"Music’s The Very Best Thing", The Bill Black Irish Tune Collection, vol.1, p.36, #69
D:The Apple In Winter, Brian Conway-Tony DeMarco

A favorite of Martin Wynne’s

Martin Wynne loved this tune and played it frequently in New York together with Vincent Harrison, a Leitrm fiddler who has since moved back to Ireland. Lad O’Beirne may have had an editorial hand in this setting.

Tim Fitzpatrick’s, X:2

This version was submitted by Alex Sutherland (1873-1967) of Drumreilly, Co Leitrim to the National Folklore Commission c1950. He named it "Over the Moore to Maggie", which as we know, is the name of another popular reel. Sutherland must have picked it up from the radio or from a musician travelling home from New York?
