Planxty Dermot Grogan

"Planxty Dermot Grogan" is dedicated to the flute and accordion player Dermot Grogan from Derrytavrane, Mayo, who died far too soon in 2006 at age 48.

Apparently…

"Dermot Grogan spent only five years in New York before returning to his native Mayo, where he passed away far too soon at the age of 48 on February 4, 2006. In those few years, however, his talent as a flute player and button accordionist, as well as his marvelous human qualities, made Dermot one of the most respected and best liked Irish traditional musicians in North America. ~ ~ ~

Dermot (on flute) can - be heard with guitarist Dónal Clancy on a beautiful hornpipe selection on the compilation Wooden Flute Obsession, vol. 2." ( disc 2, track 18 ) - Don Meade

Planxty Dermot Grogan

Please, is it a composition of Jonathan Roche?

Planxty Dermot Grogan

Just to clear up any confusion… I (Holly Geraghty) composed "Planxty Dermot Grogan". This composition features on a CD I recorded in 2009 with Jonathan Roche entitled "Ceolmhar".

Re: Planxty Dermot Grogan

Through repeated listening to this tune on Holly Geraghty and Jonathan Roche’s Ceolmhar CD and the hauntingly beautiful version recorded by McGoldrick, McCusker, and Doyle on their The Wishing Tree CD, this has become one of my favourite tunes.

The version on the Wishing Tree CD has a number of subtle changes which only add to the beauty of the tune, especially their introduction and final coda.

Earlier in this thread Jonathan Roche posted this tune as a 6/8 jig, but the rhythm definitely feels more like a slow 3/4 waltz.

I have the ABC (below) of a 3/4 version which is pretty much as Holly and Jonathan play it.
When I try to post it as a new setting on this thread it seems I can only do so as a 6/8 jig.
Can anyone advise me how to over-ride this ?

Re: Planxty Dermot Grogan

On YouTube Lucia Murphy has posted her performance and arrangement of this tune.
She plays the two fiddle parts and the piano part beautifully, with some lovely crunchy harmonies.

Lucia, if you get to read this: it would be great if you could publish your arrangement.
I for one, would love to play this with my musician friends.
