Larry Redican’s (jig)

Source: Jack and Charlie Coen - "The Branch Line"
Transcription: g.m.p.

John Carty plays a version of this a step lower on his "The Cat That Ate The Candle" album.

There’s a nice version on Kitty Hayes and Peter Laban’s CD ‘They’ll Be Good Yet’ (track 1) that has elements of this setting and of the simpler setting mentioned above (follows on after Newport Lass and Mist on the Meadow which works well).


For those looking for a slip jig named ‘Larry Redican’s’, please read:

There is a ‘Larry Redican’s’ slip jig played by Jimmy Keane on the album "The Big Squeeze: Masters Of The Celtic Accordion".

Larry did compose this tune this tune but called it ‘Lough Key’. Search Tunes for Lough Key and you’ll find it. I’ve noticed that the Big Squeeze recording has been posted on youtube too

Happy playing!
