Doesn’t sound anything like Irish music to me.
Sounds like crap.
Nail that Catfish
I believe it may be in The Portland Book and at our session it was paired with a tune called Possum up a Gum Stump. A pair to raise eyebrows in any session!!
Windybaer, although I agree with you, you did post Ragtime Annie! (My least favorite American tune… yea I know everyone does it.)
The Portland Book, Ive paged through it a few times and listened to people play from it… It seems to have quirky newly composed tunes that you either love or hate… the Appalachian/American tunes are medicore versions and I can’t speak for how it handles Irish and other traditions, but it didn’t go over well with me with the trad. American/Appalachian stuff. But then again people take it to sessions and read right from it, and the results, as with most sheet music players are stale. From a "collection" standpoint though, I don’t even think the tunes pass as accurate "skeletons" sometimes. Gee aren’t I a critic today? Sorry for the unsolicited review!
Re: Nail That Catfish To The Tree
I have a lot of fun with this tune… you can do a lot with it and each time I play it something different always happens
