Ed Duffy’s (barndance)

This is the second of the two delightful Eddie Duffy’s barndances (both called "Eddie Duffy’s") that I learnt at the Scoil

Duffy’s #2

As played on the "Dog Big and Dog Little" recording. Incidentally,on that LP the 2 tunes are called "Jimmy Duffy’s barndances". He was a box player and Eddie’s brother.

- a few variants are worked through these repeats, such as for Part 1 & 2, bars 7 & 8…

Jimmy/Eddie Duffy’s Barndances #2

- another transcription transcription, source, and a worthy cause to support by chasing up a copy for yourself, book and CD:

Eddie Duffy’s Barndance

This is the second of the two Eddie Duffy barndances on the first track of Ben Lennon’s "Dog Big and Dog Little". The first is played just melody, but as the second tune starts listen out for Fr Seamus Quinn’s wonderful and very effective piano accompaniment.

Jimmy Duffy’s #2

As played by Liam Kelly and Philip Duffy on Sets in Stone.

Re: Jimmy Duffy’s

This same hornpipe is called Tara Diamonds on the “happy to meet” 2002 album by pj crotty, carol and James cullinan.
