TECHNICALLY I sort of learned this from Patrick Hutchinson, my pipe teacher, at a session that I recorded last Sunday.
Really nice tune. I tried all the variations I could think of to see if it was already in the database but I suppose not. Maybe somebody will burn me and hang me ‘cause I didn’t do enough to see if it really was on the session. Maybe not!
Anyone know the name to this one?
A variant of Allistrum’s March? https://thesession.org/tunes/2136
The tune comes from WIllie Clancy and a classic recording by Pat Mitchell. Better check their versions, they’re better ones.
Just found out this is Willie Clancy’s version of Allistrum’s March
Technically it’s Mrs. Galvin’s version, as Willie got it from her.
This is transcribed from Yvonne Casey’s version on her CD "Yvonne Casey." Fiddle player Jesse Smith uses a low A as the first note of the second half of the first and third measures of the B section.
This is Willie Clancy’s version of Allistrum’s March: https://thesession.org/tunes/6188
This tune sounds more "right" to me if the C’s in the second part are sharped, putting the part squarely in the key of D. I noticed that the versions transcribed from pipers’ renditions avoid the issue by not including any C’s at all in the second part.
Any other opinions?
BTW I met Yvonne Casey in Doolin during the summer of 2005. She autographed my copy of her CD.
Hi, Slainte - Nice catch on the duplication. I searched for any dupes using the abc’s, and Allistrum’s didn’t come up … . . but it sure is the same tune. Learn something new every day!
@ Larry Ayers — I met her summer of 2008, and she is great!
No, Willie learned this from an old man, Mickey McCocoran was the name I think. Mrs Galvin played it in a lower key.
Mick O’Brien and Caoimhin recording
Mick O Brien and Caoimhin O Raghallaigh have a brilliant rendition of this tune on their album Kitty Lie Over. It’s a slightly different version, and arguably more interesting to listen to!
The jig after Na Ceannabhain Bhana is the one.
