The Stormy Night

This light-hearted jig is another of Tipperary box player Paddy O’Brien’s compositions. I first came across the tune in Marcus Hernon and Johnny Connolly’s duet album "Seoda na n-Oileán," where they pair it with yet another of Paddy O’Brien tunes.

The transcription here is based on the version Mickey Dunne plays in this clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_FlXlA4BQM Let me know if you spot any big mistakes.

Lovely tune

Re: The Stormy Night

If this tune was of any interest to you @Ennischanter, there is also a lovely version recorded by Caoimhe Kearns. She plays it in the key of Eb. I believe she won the Senior fiddle competition with this tune in 2014. Her full video is available on The Session. If you ever see this message, enjoy!
