I picked up this tune from the Patrick Street ‘Compendium’ album.
It comes between Jenny Picking Cockles and Jack Keane’s https://thesession.org/tunes/1357
Arty McGlynn actually plays it on a telecaster for the recording.
It’s a traditional tune according to the sleeve notes.
The first part is very similar to that of Thady Casey’s: https://thesession.org/tunes/2663
I like this with an A drone…
and, thusly, thinking of it in A phrygian/dorian.
An Gabhran, X:3
I know this as The Derry Reel. I post it here, as it’s likely a version of An Gabhrán (at least it’s similar enough, and only minor differences in the B-part).
Re: An Gabhrán
Surely the Natural mark in bar 6 of the 2nd part, of the second setting, is intended to be a sharp?
Because that F is already Natural.
