Paidín Ó Raifearta

Really nice jig in A as played by the amazing Tim Collins on his amazing album ‘Dancing on Silver’.

[N.B. This is NOT the same tune as the jig commonly played in sessions round here as Paddy (O) Rafferty’s, and to be found in it’s ABCs at Henrik Norbek’s file ‘Jigs3’. For some reason I quite dislike that tune by this name…]

Is it a version of Paudeen O’Rafferty?

A name for this jig?

Mmmm, similarities but don’t think so. Maybe some hybrid tune, a bit like lots of others really.

This is the G version on one of the Mulcahy Family albums, Notes from the Heart, I think. They go into McHugh’s after it.

Paddy O’Rafferty

A simple but hypnotic version from Shannon, McGoldrick, Gavin and Murray

The Little Drummer

A lovely tune I got from Jimmy Collins a box player.

Posted by .

This is a great favourite of Chris Droney’s and appears on his Fertile rock tape as the Tree Litte drummers.

Posted by .

This is not the jig that Chris Droney has recorded as Three Little Drummers but the 2nd jig on that trrack which is more commonly called Paudeen O’Rafferty( one of them) and so is duplicated https://thesession.org/tunes/9657.In fact this doesn’t sound remotedly like Three Little Drummers !!!!!
