From John Skelton’s playing on the first "Shegui" album. Used to love playing this for RonP’s wife’s set dancing class in Aberdeen - sadly demised - the class , that is.
PHEW - that’s a relief Kenny - it wouldn’t say much for our marriage if I hadn’t noticed!
I think this is a slightly different version of what Zina posted as Liz Kelly’s: https://thesession.org/tunes/4176 I know a very similar tune and am wondering if I should post it.
Well spotted, “slainte”. Zina has indeed posted this tune before me, although I found the tune under the title “Eileen O’Riordan’s” on several websites, but nowhere else is it called “Liz Kelly’s”.
VERY well spotted, slainte-san! I got the tune name off of Mulvihill and McComiskey’s album One More Time. Since they’re both "named" type titles, my bet is that neither of us has it right, Kenny! :)
Very possibly, Zina. Did the McComiskey/Mulvihill sleeve notes have anything to say about where they got the tune from? There wasn’t any information on "Shegui"’s album.
Not a word. Conan says he thought it was on another album which I don’t have, so I’ve asked him to tell us what name they used for it. I rather assume that either Mulvihill or McComiskey got the tune from Liz Kelly. :)
Similar tune here https://thesession.org/tunes/4379
Going back to this discussion after missing out on naming the CD 4 years ago!
It has since appeared in the automatic list of CDs with the tune - Meitheal by Seamus Begley and Steve Cooney
What Kenny has posted here is exactly as I got it direct from Eileen when she was in London about 1980.
All the best
