Back to Matt Teahan's Delight
MATT TEAHAN'S DELIGHT. Irish, Jig. A Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Moylan's notation gives a single, quick sixteenth note 'c' sharp, and the tune could just as well be played in the dorian mode. See also the first part of the "Three Little Drummers (1)" and the second part of "Walls of Liscarroll (1)," says Paul de Grae.
Source for notated version: concertina player Matt Teahan via accordion player Johnny O'Leary (Sliabh Luachra region of the Cork-Kerry border)--learned when they were both at 'The Silver Dollar' in Castleisland [Moylan].
