This is a belter of a tune courtesy of James Kelly and Paddy O’Brien.
It starts of in A mixolydian and then wanders to A maj for the second part. They (and susequently I and my friends) play it last in a set with Jim Colemans and Patsy Touheys.
Barney, is this a single reel, or a double one?
Hi Zina. Yep this is a single reel.
Nice tune. The first part is best viewed as B dorian, which has 3# like A major, so there is no actual key change and you can stick the G# in the key signature the whole way thru’.
