CLANCY'S DREAM. Irish, Jig. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A member of the large "Sweet Biddy Daly" family of 6/8 tunes. The tune was recorded by County Leitrim flute player John McKenna [1] (1880-1947) in New York for Columbia Records in 1928, paired with the slip-jig "Leitrim Town." Sligo fiddler Michael Coleman (1891-1945) also recorded it, but used the title "Paddy Clancy's." Miller prints the tune with the parts reversed from the Treoir version.
