Dinny Delaney’s Jig

Lovely tune picked up from the playing of John Carty. He plays it after one of Jogn mcHugh’s jigs on "At it again". Lovely playing John.

Oh yes, apologoies for the over simplification of the tune in the notation but it takes me too long to write it out. have a listen instead. Cheers

Thanks kiwi!

Good reminder of this tune. Haven’t played it for years but it’s the same version as Dafydd that I know.

Bean Paidín

Harry Bradley recorded this together with Emmet Gill on his latest solo recording, citing Connemara melodeon player Johnny Connolly as the source. It seems to be based on the song of the same title.

I really like that chord sequence the backers do last time through on the B-part: G-B7-Em-C-G. Great stuff!

Weird version

The tune as written here is a weird version of the tune recorded by Dinny Delaney, and seems fairly unique to John Carty. The more standard version (and that recorded by Delaney) is here: https://thesession.org/tunes/11446

Harry Bradley does indeed play the tune on "The Night-Rambler’s Companion", but again plays the more standard version, coupled with Bean Paidín

I’m sure that many get this one confused with Slip Jig.

The Repeal Of The Union, X:2

Liam O’Brien recorded a nice version on his album "The Lane".
He named it "The Repeal Of The Union".
I tried to transcripe it without his ornamentations.
