Hairs in the Chowder ~

We’re partial to corn chowder, one of our favourite luxuries. We’d grown some lovely corn and one afternoon we husked and hulled a load of it an ended up making one of the best chowders we have ever tasted, and there was agreement from those we shared it with, including one of the three loved ones who is presently dieing from smoking related cancer.

But hey, this is about this tune. I’ve given a few minor takes on it and finished with one that has a second ending, returning to that of the first. These are gleaned from my experience on several counts including an appreciation of the music of Julia Clifford, Denis Murphy and Matt Cranitch ~ and others. So, it isn’t multi-part, I just let it fly and grabbed some of the variations on the way, not ornaments, just melodic bits here and there…

This is regularly paired up with Rathawaun:

The Cat in the Corner

Johnny O’Leary sometimes referred to this, as well as another tune, as "The Cat in the Corner"…

Page 60, tune 103 - The Hare in the Corn
& the ‘other’ -
Page 196, tune 348 - The Cat in the Corner

Neither of these are the same as "The Cat in the Corner" on site here. The second ‘other’, tune #348 in the book, does not appear to have yet found a place on site here, maybe soon…

;-)

Take 2, Part B, Bar 3
It seems a ‘spell checker’ upped a starting ‘e’ to an ‘E’ when I wasn’t looking, now corrected in the ABCs…

This is it. Good man!

I have this version from a local box player in Carlow:
|: A |
B2 B A2 G BdB A2G | BdB d2B A3 A2G
B2 B A2 G BdB A2G | BdB d2B G3 G2G
|: B/c/d |
e3 edB e2f g3 | BAB d2B A3 AB/c/d |
e3 edB e2f g3 | BAB d2B G3 GB/c/d |:|

usually finishes tune with the last phrase of the first part, if you know what I mean.

Plays this in a set after Hag at the Kiln and follows with A2e e2d BAB dB etc. - can’t recall name and too lazy to look it up!!

X: 6 “The Hare In The Corn”

Based on ‘the wounded hussar’ transcription above…

X: 8 “The Hare In The Corn”

Another take, with accidentals & a second ending for the B-part that returns to the A-part ending…
