Kevin Keegan’s #2
This tune may be heard on Tape 5 at http://www.joecooleytapes.org/. Keegan and Cooley play the waltz, then go into the Orphan jig https://thesession.org/tunes/217; students of theirs still do the same, as the melodies are rather akin. The other Kevin Keegan Waltz has been here for a while: https://thesession.org/tunes/8798 I’ve been working on a setting for that more faithful to what Kevin actually played. Joe and Joanie Madden play both tunes on their Galway Afternoon record, sort of; this tune they call Her Mantle So Green, and the melody of that song is indeed very much like this tune. They also cap off their medley of waltzes with the Orphan.
Re: Kevin Keegan’s
Thank you for your fine setting of this lovely waltz. It’s a real favorite of mine and gets played alot out on the West Coast. We used to play it with Kevin when he was living. I’m happy to hear it getting around. Keep up the good work!
Kevin Keegan’s, X:2
This rhythm is closer to what I am used to hearing. Perhaps folks have mucked with it since Kevin Keegan’s time.
