Beautiful whistle tune
A Mystic, beautiful tune i like to play. Slow or fast….
Do you know the origin of this? It can be played as a march too. Very nifty tune!
From the CD of Stockon’s wing
wow, how nice to see this tune here. learned it many many years ago, but had since forgotten about it. thanks for posting it…
stockton’s Wing play this as arather slow tune - dream time….
I love this jig—-it was written by Maurice Lennon of Stockton’s Wing. He plays it in a set that starts with the jig Rose in the Heather. He also composed the beautiful slow air "If Ever You Were Mine" Great fiddler!
I really like that jig.
Yes, that is in my key…
I first heard this tune about a week ago at a session in Elora, Ontario. There, the players usually put it together in a set with John Whelan’s "The Trip to Skye" and a untitled Breton "An Dro". A very dark, compelling set….especially played on Scottish small pipes.
Maybe I don’t have enough info on this, but ….
This jig appears on the Stockton Wing’s recording, "The Crooked Rose," where it is part of a set of jigs called "Aaron’s Key" (The Rose in the Heather/Aaron’s Key/O’Dea’s).
According to the liner notes (found here - http://www.taramusic.com/sleevenotes/cd3028.htm), it was written by flute/whistle player Paul Roche, not Maurice Lennon.
The third tune, "O’Dea’s" was co-composed by Paul Roche and Maurice Lennon.
Quote from Fiddler’s COmpanion:
"AARON’S KEY. Irish, Jig. Composed by Paul Roche, flute player for the band Stockton’s Wing. Hemisphere 7243 8 31216 25, Stockton’s Wing - "Celtic Graces" (1994). Tara Music, Stockton’s Wing - "The Crooked Rose" (1992). "
This tune, although different in places, is very similar to the Coleraine jig.https://thesession.org/tunes/17
My friend Paul Young plays this tune brilliantly on his melodeon
The Rattling Cox
First heard it from a german Band along with Old John’s Jig and later in a Session accompanied by the Kerfuntan Jig.
nice one, sounds for me like a variation of the coleraine jig…
whats the name of the band?
I AM NEW PLZ ADD ME AND SOUNDS LIKE ITS A NICE TUNE
It’s not "The Cock Of The North".
Yes its a duplicate. I’ve compared it with Aarons Key.
I transcribed it from a Recording of the german Band Tune Up, its called "The Rattling Cox" on their CD.
Is it possible to erase this tune and add it to Aarons Key as another Setting?
This tune has nothing to do with "Cock Of The North"
A little variation - ornamented version
Just started playing this one on the banjo - love this tune! Some ornaments kind of came naturally for me so I thought I’d take my first shot at submitting the ABC of it. It’s my first try so be gentle 🙂
Re: Aaron’s Key
Just saw video of Stockton’s Wing playing a new song on Ray D’Arcy’s show (RTE).
Paul said Aaron’s Key is a reference to his son’s toy keys when he was a toddler - it was a teething aid.
Nice play on the word!
Aaron’s Key, X:4
Aaron’s Key, X:5
Some variations, mostly from Faran Flad’s album Maiden Voyage, with a few alternatives from 2duos’ album Until The Cows Come Home. The B’s to F#’s to B’s is the variation which differs most from the previous settings.
Re: Aaron’s Key
Second tune here… https://youtu.be/NbjecQJeCWA
Aaron’s Key, X:6
From the playing of 2duos.
Have also updated X5 to represent Faran Flad’s version alone. My previous comment should have said their setting differed in that it went "BFB cFc", rather than the more typical "BFB cBc".
Aaron’s Key, X:7
Some combination of X5 and X6 (Faran Flad’s and 2duo’s settings), with a few other variations as well.
Aaron’s Key, X:8
From the playing of DeReelium.
Aaron’s Key, X:9
From the playing of The Duplets.
