3rd bar B part I thought was:
I saw it that way on TuneDB.org, but the recording I learned it from was clearly a c#. Another one I listened to a bit of online had a slide up from the B to the c#; it could easily go either way. So with one source each way and one both, I decided to go with what I’d learned.
For a short period of time Armand (fiddlinviolinin) and I were trying to divine the name of this polka from a recording of Caoimhin o’Raghallaigh and Willy Kelly. I searched thesession database, even using the notation filter to search it out. It looked like we had a brand-spanking-new tune on our hands! Excited, I rushed to post it, only to have my enthusiasm quickly crushed: "It’s the Ballyvourney!". I was astounded, how was the amazing note search fooled?
The tune is in E dorian; we had it in D minor. Their instruments were just flat on the recording XD
James Kelly and Paddy O’Brien recorded this polka as "Cuil Aodha."
Modality of Ballyvourney Polka
I think it’s in D major but it just happens to start and end by implying an A chord. You can drone an A most of the time — except for during the implied G chords.
