Transcribed from a Pat Kilbride album.
Great tune, jocklet. I knew it as "Dinny O’Brien’s" hornpipe some years before Pat Kilbride recorded it, and "De Danann" recorded it under that name too. Joe Burke regularly plays it under the name "The Shaskeen", and it is easy to see the similarities between it and the reel.
P.S. - I put in "D O’B’s" as an alternative title and it’s come up in about 6 recordings. Those sre more likely to be the reel of that name, and it might avoid confusion if you delete "D.O’B’s" as a title.. Sorry about that. Well done.
From Mick Mulvey’s cd, also known as The Gift and recorded by Bob Davenport and the Rakes as Greenwich Park.
It’s late, I’m tired, but isn’t this a match?https://thesession.org/tunes/4675
Similar but a different tune; the limitations of ABC are really apparent for that reason
A match at last!
Thanks Will, I didn’t think it would ever happen :-)
And thanks Jeremy for sorting out my error with the #
I will be more careful in future.
Other Names for Broadway Hornpipe
I’ve added two other names for this tune. It appears on Paddy Keenan’s "Na Keen Affair" as Dinny O’Brien’s. Also on Tony Linnane & Patrick Sky’s album, "The Princess Royal", as The Flowers in May.
I heard this on the Come West Along the Road DVD being lilted by Jimmy Sinnott. It was named "The Mullingar Races" but "The Mullingar Races" is more commonly known as a reel which is also to be found in the database.
Rover Through the Bog
Musicians in NYC used to call this Taylor’s, often playing it with an Fnat in the 2nd part, and various other fiddle-ish little runs here and there. It would be worth an entry in its own right.
Annie’s Favourite, X:2
From the piping of Tommy Kearney, Waterford, the transcription I guess was done by Pat Mitchell, it was included in the 1980 book Ceol An Piobaire. Kearney called it the Butchers of Bristol, his teacher Liam Walsh recorded it as the Mountain Groves: https://archive.org/details/LiamWalshTheMountainGrovesHigginsHornpipeTheCork
Re: Annie’s Favourite
Thank you for the music and the comments. John Carty and his daughter Maggie just released it as the Shaskeen Hornpipe on their new cd Settle Out of Court.
