Additional notes

The Irish Music Club, Chicago, very early 20th century. James Kerwin is the flute player reclining on the floor, on the right.
Source for notated version: - "James Kerwin" [O'Neill]. Chicago Police Sergeant James Kerwin was a member of the Irish Music Club of Chicago, who hosted club meetings and music sessions in his home on Wabash Ave. O'Neill twice in Irish Minstrels and Musicians (1913) makes mention of his hospitality, but records nothing about him as a musician or his background.
