John Brady’s (jig)

From the duet playing of Chicago musicians, John Williams and Liz Carroll. It’s a flute-friendly tune, so probably a composition of Offaly flute player John Brady. Any of his tunes has a name, so I hope someone will inform the original title of this little jig.

Also on the solo recording of Paddy O’Brien (Offaly).

Not the Same Tune

This isn’t the tune played by John Williams on Steam, so if you’ve been directed here from the Steam "Recording" link it’s not the tune you’re looking for. The John Brady reel that John Williams plays is also called Macintyre’s Fancy and can be found here:

Sorry - I hope this helps. I’m not up to speed (to say the least) when it comes to ABCs.

Cocus, your comments are very confusing. This is John Brady’s *Jig* on John William’s second solo album "Steam." John Brady’s *Reel* on "Steam" is called Father Newman’s: https://thesession.org/tunes/1246

McIntyre’s Fancy is a jig composed by John Brady: https://thesession.org/tunes/819 You can watch his daughter play it on Comhaltas Live.

John Brady’s, X:2

I learned this tune last summer in Ireland

John Brady’s, X:3 - from Donal Murphy’s album Happy Hour

I went looking for this tune (John Bradys) on the session.org but found that the version on Donal Murphy’s Happy Hour album was completely different from the versions posted here even though it had the same name. Adding the Donal Murphy album version here.

Re: John Brady’s

It’s not a "version", it’s a completely different tune.
And while I look at this, there seems to be a bit of "dislocation" between versions #1 and #2.
