I got this off "The Wind Among The Reeds" but I haven’t got the liner notes. Is this trad or a recent composition?

D mix ?

That’s a great tune at leat to my tate.
Isn’t the mode D mix the corrext one?

I’d treat this as straightforward G major like "Out On The Ocean". I find it very difficult to view this as Dmix, but if you can find suitable Dmix chords then I’d be interested to try them out.

Dow,
as a whistle/pipes player I’m not so wise about chords, I just had the feeling this tune has its centre at D, not G.

It does look like it centres on D on paper because it goes down to D a lot, and the parts end on A, but the notes G and B are stated repeatedly in the melody, and these outline a chord of G, more or less blocking Dmix as a possibility (unlike tunes such as "Blarney Pilgrim" for example, where there are more A’s and C’s). This means that the mode is G Ionian (major) or E Aeolian (minor). Also, you probably feel that D is the centre because a drone on D sounds really good in this tune (which it does). In this case a (pipes) drone on D would be sounding the 5th and would not indicate that the actual fundamental is D.

I learned this tune from John Skelton who said that Tommy Keane had found it in an old manuscript. Great tune!

Version I learnt unornamented. I learnt it as Paddy Kelly’s jig.

"I got this tune from my old banjo teacher. It’s an easy tune to learn and I’ve never heard it recorded anywhere. I wonder is it infact a Paddy Kelly composition. I’m not sure.

I’ve transcribed it (above) unornamented but there is a lot of room for ornamentation and variation particulary on whistle/flute and possibly fiddle, though I’ll leave a fiddle player to answer that one.

I was given this tune to play as a set after the jig, "The Gandor in the pratie hole".

I would rate this jig alongside tunes such as "The Leg of the Duck" which seem quite repetitive yet offer lots of variation oppurtunities."

Anthony Frawley was a West Clare fiddle player who would have influenced several in the last real genation of that style, don’t know if he wrote the tune, best known from the playing of Paddy Kelly of Cree (very weird, I was just playing this, thought I’d look up what anyone might have to say about it…and behold it comes live on the radio on the West Wind, magic!).
