Played on…

One of De Dannan’s early albums, sorry can’t remember the name. There, as in other places, it’s played in A rather than E

The Tailor Small’s

Jackie got this tune from his father, who was a tailor by trade.

De Dannan’s recording

On the classic De Dannan recording Jackie Small’s jig is played in Dm, perhaps because they used a C melodeon. Flowers of Spring and Jackie Smalls sound great played on a one-row melodeon.

The video makes more sense than the dots for the tune itself only begins to make sense when played against a drone or other suitable harmonic background…

I have absolutely no idea what the name of this tune are either, so I don’t hope it’s duplicate. I have heard this one with De Dannan live At The Embankment 1976 on TG4 played after https://thesession.org/tunes/12442 . If anyone know the name I will be glad.

Thanks for the name Gary, and so it was a duplicate….
