From the bothy band live, follows on from Patsy Geary’s. Great tune, I’m surprised this ones not already on the site.
Recorded by Michael Coleman as the last of three jigs on a 78 side that started with "The Wandering Minstrel" and "Faste the Leg in Her." No title on the disc.
This feels more like a slide to me. Is it just me or does anyone else think so too?
Definitely more like a slide, but it’s obviously listed as a jig in most versions floating around the net
For me it has more of a jig feel, especially in the B-part.
~ and the A-part…
Its a jig..
Here in gurteen we play it as a jig ..
shifting tonal center: Emin to Gmaj and back
Forgot to add back in 2005 that it is a ‘single jig’, so, consequently, it does belong to that family which includes slides.
Coleman’s Cross, X:2
A few alternatives.
The "G3" in the 1st and 5th bars of the B Part could be replaced with "GAG".
Leo Rickard has a nice recording of this on the pipes (album "Up, Down & Around"), following after Calliope House. Henri’s Notions does as well (album "Trip to the Cottage"), following after The Gallowglass. The latter plays the two parts in reverse order, which is interesting for a change.
