I have known that tune since I was a kid, never tried it on violin. I do know it had a different name though. But it is definately known under a different guise. Just tried to look it up on the net but it has the same name everywhere, I must have false memory.
I didn't know there's actually "a" Saint Patrick's Day Jig!
Not too late to learn!
Here's a great video tutorial by Duncan Cameron. More info at duncancameron.com/lesson-resources and also at thesession.org
...anyone play this?
too funny..you must of posted when i was recording...great tune! wanted to do Kesh after it but the beginning of both sound so similar kept playing st patricks...doh..
This is my favorite version.. not as traditional but a great take on it. he transitions to another tune at the end.
The Session.org lists these as other names:
"Barbary Bell, Barbary Belle, Barbary Belles, La Feile Naoim Patraic, La Feile Padraig, La Gheile Paidric, Old England For Ever, Perry’s Victory, St. Patrick’s Day In The Morning March, St. Patrick’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day In The Morning"
...think I'd be doing a jig, if I had all those snakes at my feet. (lol)
Still remember, I was maybe 4 or 5 years old, riding in my Dad's Lincoln Continental and on our way home from visiting relatives - how upset my mother was when she found I'd stashed a couple baby garter snakes in my coat pocket to sneak home. 🤭
I agree with you - sounds really nice slowed down, especially this time of the evening!
Refreshed myself on the "Musical Priest", but have absolutely no energy left to even consider recording it tonight. 😔
