Eleanor Rigby (Father McKenzie’s Jig)

A version of Eleanor Rigby (the Beatles song, of course), but learned from De Dannan’s fantastic interpretation on their 2000 album, ‘Welcome to the Hotel Connemara’ – so it’s rather different. I’m playing it rather slower than the breakneck speed De Dannan play it at; it’s quite nice slower I think… but go listen to their version, because it’s great. It took me a little while to figure out why they also call it ‘Fr McKenzie’s’… until I remembered the Beatles lyrics. Doh!

Played on a Castagnari Giasco I in D/G for melodeon.net’s theme of the month for July 2021; ‘Alphabet Soup – E’

Rain on the Woodpile

Here’s another tune! Half-learned up for a melodeon.net theme, still working on the other half of the set, Terminus. This tune (and Terminus, when I eventually learn it) are both Rob Harbron compositions.

Played on a Castagnari Giasco I in D/G.
