Humours Of Nickey

Transcribed from E.Fox & N.Byrne - The Sunny Banks.
Composed by Joe Liddy.

Oh well, I’d say it’s still in E dorian, just played a semitone higher…
This way it might be more convenient for the reader.

Jean2: I think Edel is playing a C#/G# concertina, and the lads are tuned up a semitone.

You’re right, Snorre. For concerts (at least on the 2013 US tour) and the wonderful Sunny Banks recording, Edel uses her C#/G# Wally Carroll concertina and switches to the C/G Jeffries for playing socially. Hers is the "small" (5 5/8 inches) as opposed to the "standard" (6 1/4 inches) and the details are at http://www.carrollconcertinas.com
