Another Eddie Moloney’s jig
Transcribed from The Kane Sisters’ album Side By Side https://thesession.org/recordings/display/3727
where they play it in C. They said they got it from Patrick Ourceau. There’s a rather different version on Dana Lyn’s album Looking for the Early Opener https://thesession.org/recordings/display/1278
where I think it’s in C#.
It appears to be closely related (maybe the same tune) as Hills of Larraga https://thesession.org/tunes/5202 and The Shoemaker’s Fancy http://abcnotation.com/tunePage?a=www.capeirish.com/webabc/collections/CRE/v2/cre2-tunes.txt/0009
The Kanes sometimes play the B flat, sometimes natural, and sometimes slide from the flat to the natural.
Yes, this is probably a version of Hills of Larraga. Eddie Moloney was from the parish of Ballinakill, East Galway, and so is Mike Rafferty.
I saw a photo of Eddie Moloney playing the fiddle, but he has been much more well-known as a flute player: http://www.lafferty.ca/music/irish/flute-geezers
So, it’s quite likely that this jig was originally played by Eddie Moloney in Dmix.
I think Eddie sometimes played Boehm system flute, as does his son Sean. So could have played it in C on flute
