Four comments

"(The) Trip to Durrow" ~ being reminded

Going back a ways, I first learned this as a ‘set dance’ back in the 70s, and it was either a box player in Tipperary or a flute player in Limerick, or both, and they played this as a set dance, with swing. I first just dropped a take on it in the ‘comments’ for the reel, but it is different enough, a whole different approach to it, and slower, as a set dance and with swing, that I’ve a bit more nerve to add it on its own, and face the firing squad. There was also Doc Dow’s recent thread in discussion on ‘Choice’, so you can in part blame him for this choice… 😉

Here’s follows that earlier comment submission cleared up a little, with its differences, and the comment also repeated, as ~

"The Trip to Durrow" ~ Swung

Unsure where the cut off is for ‘different’, I’m putting this in the ‘comments’, where I’ve resided since losing trust in my own assumptions. Anyway, I tried to remember this as I’d learned it as what I was thinking and had noted ‘hornpipe’, probably just in reference to it being swung, because now that I play it that way again it feels more like a set dance, what with the 8 bar A-part and 16 bar B-part. Anyway, here it is in that form, with some few variations given. You could also use the notes as given in the original reel versions available. So, for your fun and enjoyment, hopefully, here it is swung in the style of a hornpipe or set dance. I also play it without the ‘lead-ins’, just laying on a final ‘D’ in each final measure ~ F>D D2 :| ~

The box player I suspect as the source had a large store of set dances, including his own compositions…
