Táim In Arrears

From the album ‘Lá ag Ól Uisce’, by Tomás Ó Gealbháin, Caoimhín Ó Fearghail & Seán Ó Fearghail.

The sleeve notes say that this tune "is a version of the song ‘Táim in Arrears’ which Ciarán Ó Gealbháin brought to my attention. It is to be found in the old song-book ‘Amhrán na nGleann’, edited by Finghin na Leamhna in 1939".

Here is a setting in G

I learned this from Tim Collins in a workshop in Florida around 2008.

Molly Rua?

Sure seems to be the tune I’ve learned as Molly Rua or Red Molly

Táim In Arrears, X:3

As played by accordionist Seamus Begley with guitarist Tim Edey. Begley plays it in the key of A (sometimes in Bb when using an Eb-pitched accordion), which made it challenging for me to find the tune; hopefully this will help others. This is a bare-bones transcription with only a little of the ornamentation. The distinguishing feature of Begley’s version is the ornamented low E to start the tune, which he also throws in for variety at other points in the tune.
