Mrs O’Connor’s

As played by Emma O’Leary on her album Mo Cheantar Féin.

That [Aa] chord means: play the low A the first time and the high A in the repeat. I didn’t want to clutter the tune with more lines just because one not changes.

From the sleeve notes:
Mrs. O’Connor’s - Mrs. O’Connor was a concertina player from Knockatee, Cordal, the grandmother of Niall O’Connor the accordion player originally from Knockatee, who is the nephew of Kilcummin accordion player John Brosnan.

Máire O’Keeffe, fiddle player and native of Tralee made a personal recording of Ned O’Connor, Dan Jeremiah O’Connor playing these slides in Fleming’s Bar in Scartaglen on 18th May 1995. The music from this recording which also included Maurice O’Keeffe was transcribed by Paul De Grae for the purpose of recreating the recording on 18th May 2019 as part of the World Fiddle Day Scartaglen fiddle session. Máire donated this recording to the Sliabh Luachra Archive.

This transcription was requested by bolusboy. Enjoy!
