Paddy Fahey’s other hornpipe
Another Paddy Fahey tune and I think its a great one! I first heard this hornpipe from Anne Conroy Burke over a year ago at a class in the Joe Mooney Summer School. I joined her class mid week and this had been done earlier so all I had was a tape recording from which I tried subsequently to learn the tune. I could never get past the first couple of bars and snatches of the tune elsewhere - it jumps around the place a bit and my inexperienced ear couldn’t keep up! Came across a transcription by Josephine Keegan lately, she has it in Bflat and the tune varies a little from Anne’s version. Anyway this helped me to get past the bits I was stuck on. This is Anne’s version in G - I’m not sure about the linking triplet, try a few and see what you like : Bcd doesn’t sound right to me. Also I think Anne plays the dcd triplet as a roll.
Kane (Keane?) Sisters Version
This is the version the Kane Sisters Play on their CD "Under The Diamond" Track 4.1 before the acrobat (also In Bb).
T: Paddy Fahy’s (#3438)
C: Paddy Fahy

Update to ABC
I’ve revisited this after a few years, tidied up the ABC and made a few adjustments. I haven’t the Kane recording, so can’t check - I do know that Ann Conroy plays it a little different from the Keegan transcription but which is closer to the original, I don’t know.
