Paddy Fahy’s

Picked this up from a bunch of fiddlers at a session in Canberra during the 2007 National Folk Festival. This is the 1st of the "Fahey’s" tunes on track 11 of the Kane sisters’ "Under The Diamond", and the version I’ve submitted is transcribed directly from the CD. Some of the fiddlers got it from this recording, but one says he got the tune from track 12 of this recording of Paddy Carty that has not been released on CD https://thesession.org/recordings/display/1547.

Also on Breda Keville’s gorgeous debut album. I think she is joined by another E. Galway fiddler Liam Lewis on the track. Sorry if I’m mistaken.

This is from Breda Kreville’s "The Hop Down" album - first tune on track 11.
