Joey’s Delight

Composed by Leitrim fiddler Joe Liddy (1906-1992), this is the third reel in the set played by Edel Fox and Neil Byrne on track 5 of their 2013 recording, The Sunny Banks. I was playing along with that record and had some questions about this tune, but found that no one had yet transcribed it for thesession. So here it is!
(Note: On the record, Edel is playing a C#/G# concertina and the strings are all tuned up a half step; so it is heard a half step higher than as transcribed in Edorian.)

Re: The Humours Of Nickey

Just noticed these tunes are listed the wrong way round on the Edel Fox CD! This tune is The Humours of Nickey in the Liddy book. (Unless the book itself is wrong!).
