This is another tune that could just be an alternative setting of something else, but I couldn’t find anything too similar to it in my searches… so apologies if it’s already here, I did try! It’s the last tune of track 18 on ‘Dear Old Erin’s Isle’.
This is ONE FINE TUNE!
Not what anyone else calls "Cooley’s" though. Does anyone know more about it’s background?
coming back to the discussion, this has become a staple of my playing: with its separation of voices and angular melody, it is an absolute gem.
Seamus Cooley’s, X:2
A version I learned from Jimmy Keane, who knew Seamus.
Re: Seamus Cooley’s
It just struck me that the B section of this tune is exactly the same as the B section of "Down The Back Lane": https://thesession.org/tunes/1496
