A Breton In Paris

Davy Spillane’s performance of the second half of Titanic from the Live in Dublin CD & DVD. From what little detail I can hear it repeats much the same when Davy "duels" with Keith Donald on saxophone. Wonderful stuff!

A Breton In Paris

I was asked if I would show Davy Spillane’s live version with all its ornamentation second so this is it. The first version is without trappings. Note that Davy slides up to the high G note in bars 2,3,6,10,11 & 14 but I haven’t yet found a way to show that.

A Breton in Paris

You can find a really good version by Padraig Rynne in the album "Live in Belfast"with Paul Bradley and Paul Meehan.The 5th tune in a wonderful set called Breton in Paris / Deisil. Breton in Paris is followed by the reel Not safe with a razor and Garrett Barry’s reel . Anyone knows who composed this first tune?

A Breton In Paris, X:3

Shifting the beat about and tidying up this.

Re: A Breton In Paris

An Am tune which is said the be in G, and an Em setting written in D. This is confusing. It’s a gapped scale (none of the settings has the seventh (f# and c# respectively), but still screams _minor_.

Re: A Breton In Paris

Sure, just that I never put the ‘Key’ in, just use K: for the key signature. That’s how I’d think of it, up to you to interpret the tune when you’re playing or backing it.
