Padraig O’Keefe’s No. 1

This slide from the repertoire of Padraig O’Keeffe was recorded by the Mulcahy family on "Notes From The Heart" CD. "Session.org" member "Bribak" requested a name for it 4 days ago, but no one has come up with any answer. If it’s here already under a different name, I couldn’t find it, so I’ve transcribed it myself. it’s yet another "Padraig O’Keeffe’s" until someone comes up with a "more original" title.
The Mulcahy’s play it in "C".

It’s called "The Gleanntan Frolics" in Johnny O’Leary of Sliabh Luachra (No.192).

Gelntown Frolics No. 1

From the album Five and Twenty by Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham. First tune of the first track.

Re: Glentown Frolics No. 1

Thanks! Love that tune.

Re: Glentown Frolics No. 1

I believe this is a duplicate of the ‘Glentane Frolics’, a slide

Re: Glentown Frolics No. 1

Just checked and it’s indeed the same tune, Thady.


Would it be possible to delete this one? I’ll add a new setting to the original one.

Thanks.
