Source: Beginish, "stormy weather".
This is my first barn dance submission, and the 3rd barn dance called Thadelo’s on the site. The tune is so ‘cliché’ to me, that I couldn’t resist to learn it, and now I can’t resist to post it. Besides, it’s really fun to play, at least on the fiddle.
On the other hand, I see that "The Black Bird" (not the set dance), the 2nd one on Beginish’s set before "The Corn Reeks", is not in the DB. I’ll post it soon, because it seems to be a ‘must have’.
In fact I won’t post it, because it is listed as a hornpipe in the DB, posted by ‘slainte’, in Dmix.
Didn’t search enough. However it’s a quite different version, I’ll put Beginish’s one in the comments.
I don’t know how this can be a barn dance. I tried to imagine dancing to it and - I couldn’t . I think it might be a fling or a scottische but Never a barn dance.
Am I wrong??
Nice tune though
I’m ready to change the type of the dance then, if anybody knows…
Johnny O’Leary’s version; "Single Hornpipe"
Fiddler’s Companion has this to say about it:
"Irish, Hornpipe. Ireland, Sliabh Luachra region of the Cork-Kerry border. G Major. Standard. AB."
From the 1994 "Johnny O’Leary of Sliabh Luachra" book, replicated here: http://www.capeirish.com/webabc/collections/jol/jol-tunes.html
T: Thadelo Sullivan’s Hornpipe (2)
B: JOL (#189)
I: This is a "single" hornpipe (i.e., no repeats).
