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).

Enjoy!

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.

Re: Paddy Fahey’s

Randal Bays plays a nice version ..
