Lady Wrixon

A lovely Jig by Carolan, nice when played at good steady pace.

Re: Lady Wrixon

The version of this in the Petrie collection (1855) is E major (but with most of the Ds natural, so mostly E mix).

Re: Lady Wrixon

I think that the key should be A. Does not sound right to me.

Lady Wrixon, X:2

This is the version I learned many years ago from one of the O’Neill’s books. It starts with the Gm sixth E flat then uses the raised 6th E natural in the body of the tune instead of the regular minor 6th in the other version. I found the abc online with the header C:Turlough O’Carolan B:O’Neill’s 675 Z: 1997 by John Chambers
