The Other Mrs. Galvin’s
This is the jig titled Mrs. Galvin’s from Comb Your Hair & Curl It, by Catherine McEvoy, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Mícheál Ó Raghallaigh. Not finding it here, I asked Caoimhín about it… he told me it came from a recording of Mrs. Galvin’s playing.
The second part is more or less the same as the second part of Happy To Meet, Sorry To Part. The repeated G roll at the end of the second part may be a variation, but I stuck it in here because: it’s seriously cool.
Not to be confused with another tune ,a hornpipe Catherine Mc Evoy recorded on her album with Felix Doran
Supposedly Mrs. Galvin recorded it on a flat fiddle and the tune is fingered in A, not in G. Here’s the A setting, also with the seriously cool repeated roll ending.
