Rounding out the set
I was surprised this tune was not already on thesession as it is part of the standard "Sligo Set":
Up Sligo/Rollicking Boys Of Tandragee/Out With The Boys
Anyways, this version is from Kevin Burke’s solo fiddle in Oregon.
Off to the Races
Kevin used to refer to this tune, rightly or wrongly, as Off to the Races. It’s on the 2nd of his Homespun teaching videos, where he shares some nice thoughts about it.
Laurence Nugent has this as Pip Murphy’s. I wouldn’t know for certain but I’m guessing that perhaps this is harmonica player Pip Murphy, son of the late Phil Murphy who lives down in Carrick on Bannow in Wexford. See this link for info Phil Murphy https://thesession.org/tunes/5121
Out with the Boys ——> Pigtown Fling
This jig reminds me of The Pigtown Fling - they make a nice pair (if you don’t mind mixing jigs and reels in the same set!)
Cormac breathnach version
there’s a fantastic and jazzy (and 3-part) version of this on deiseal’s second album. cormac’s second part is quite a bit more interesting than the standard one, IMHO, which to my ears is a bit too predictable.
Out With The Boys, X:2
Here is the version published in O’Neill’s Dance Music of Ireland - 1001 Gems (1907), p. 24, no. 45, as Out with the Boys, Amac Leis Na Buacaillib.
As I don’t really like 3 identical bars in a row, I suggest this at the beginning of B |:d|e^de gfg|eBe gfg|e^de gfg|
X: 3 "Out With The Boys"
"Call the Set III"
