Paddy Fahy’s

Another Paddy Fahy double jig. We learned this from the playing of Yvonne Kane. I have to check yet, if it is on one of the Kane sisters recordings.

A version of this appears on Fisherstreet’s "Out in the Night":

This is based on the box setting, but I can hear the concertina playing F#s in the 2nd bar |cBc afd| which I don’t think sounds as good. I prefer to hear those come as a surprise towards the end of each part. I like to hear a dorian tune put its #6ths to good use like this!
