Tune name please

Post by jack london »

Does the third tune of this set have another name? I just can't think of it. For some reason I keep hearing a recording of Paddy Keenan playing it. But I have been wrong before...

I think it is the man/woman/mistress/lady/lord of the house. But I'm keeping my options open.

Oh, yeah: also a mod here, not a spammer. A matter of opinion, perhaps.

I know it as The Woman Of The House. I don't rightly recall, but just as in the vid info, I may have heard it called The First Month Of Summer once or twice.

Paddy Keenan plays it on this CD Long Grazing Acre
Colliers and The Woman of the House

The tune John McSherry plays sounds more like The Colliers Reels played after the Old Bush Reel.

I've never heard it called anything but the Woman of the House. The Mistress of the House is a title I usually hear reserved for Tommy Reck's version of the tune (which has a substantially different B part). It's definitely the same tune as the second one in the Paddy Keenan track as well.

Thanks everyone-- Woman of the House it is. It is also on the Keenan/Glackin recording called Doublin'.

I think the Keenan recording is called port an piobaire, which he made with arty mcglynn. Oh, and it's on the 'Doublin'' album too.
