Picked this off the ‘Inis’ CD - ‘Over the Moor to Maggie’.
Can’t find this Jig on any of the Stckton’s Wing recordings.
Is it on the site in another key perhaps?
This tune is on Edinburgh-based flute and fiddle player Claire Mann’s self-titled album. It seems the real name of the tune is O’Dea’s, and attributed to Maurice Lennon and Paul Roche.
Does this man ‘Slainte’ ever sleep? - well done sir!
Thanks Slainte. It was bugging me that I couldn’t remember where I had heard this tune. You just saved me much aggravation.
Well, I do sleep more than you do, Mr. Grouse.
Claire Mann’s version
She plays the tune with a few different things than what is posted here. I’m posting the whole tune and then will point out the differences:
~G3 GBd|BGD ~E3|DGB d2 d|edb def|~g3 ged|edg edB|~e3 edB|gdB ABA:|
|:C3 CBA|Bde d2 e|dBG GBd|gdB ABA|GBd ~g3|ged ede|~e3 edB|gdB ABA:|
Really just a few notes towards the end of each part are different than what is posted here, but just those few notes gives a different feel to the tune. The rolls I’ve added are of course a preference thing and Claire does some other cran-ny like things at times that I haven’t included. She also does a variation in the first two measures of the B part:
|:~e3 edB|ded d2 e|
Anyway, just a few little differences to add when if you play the tune.
The "b" in the 4th measure of the version I posted above should be a "B". Also, the variation that I listed for the B part, Mann consistently plays this the first time through the B part, and then plays the other variation the second time through.
Claire plays the tune just as Stockton’s Wing play it; the sheet music version here is a simplified form of the tune
@Ptarmigan. It appears to be the 3rd tune of the third track in the album entitled The Crooked Rose.
I will try to upload a transcribed score.
This was the version taken from the third track of the The Crooked Rose album by Stockton’s Wing.
