Daniel Kelly- Turlough O’Carolan
This is the second tune of a set called ‘The Kelly Set’, arr. by Chris Norman and found on the Dorian recording ‘The Reel of Tulloch’. It is an air, though I’ve only heard it with a slight cadence..
The first tune in this set, ‘Mild Mabel Kelly’, was just submitted. A link to the third, ‘Castle Kelly’ was provided with the last submittal. The fourth tune, ‘Captain Kelly’, can be found here:
Unfortunately I was unable to find any words or historical context for this tune. Any reference would be welcome.
