It seems Planxty does a 5 part version, Seamus Ennis does an interesting 6 part version, and I have an old recording of Leo Rowseome playing even a 7 part version. The question I ask is, which one is most commonly played? Assuming there is a "most common" one played of course. :)

Planxty's 5 part version is what I play. I don't know what's commonly played either. I'm pretty much the only person that plays it at all in my neck o' the woods.

I think we play a five part version too, unless it's six and we just forget a part sometimes.

Only ever heard 5 parts - but would be interested to hear the other one or two parts.

Seamus Ennis on Return From Fingal, and The Wandering Minstrel.

As for the Leo Rowsome recording I have, that was downloaded from a public domain website, which also has many other OLD recordings of the past's greats in ITM.

Oops, I thought we played a six-parter but on playing through it I'm pretty sure it's only five.

As I recall, it's the same one as Colm O'Donnell lilts on "Farewell to Evening Dances."

Did the Planxty one sound something like this?

Different version from Planxty. I wonder if its Willie Clancy's version?

Sure sounded like the 1st two parts of "Frieze Britches" followed by another jig, "Will You Come Home with Me?". I wonder if O'Flynn gave them the abridged version of FB for demonstration purposes.

I think the 1st jig Liam plays in that clip is actually "I Buried My Wife an Danced on Her Grave".

Which is basically a two-part version of "Frieze Britches". :)

Quite true. I guess what I meant to point out was that he was not simply playing the first two parts of the same setting of Frieze Britches as he played/recorded with Planxty.

cheers,

You're right! I can't believe I missed that!
