This is one to play nice and slow. The Bothy Band do a wonderful version of this with a countermelody running throughout. Jeremy has it right. Matt Molloy of the Bothy Band playing this one makes you want to weep. I think I looped through it about 15 times to just soak up what they were doing.
Brings out a whole different set of qualities from the same tune. Kevin Burke is without doubt a genius. I think it sounds better in Dmin too - which means half-covered holes for the F-naturals when playing keyless flute or whistle.
For a solo though, I can be reliably smoother in E dorian. Hi cferrie, I listened carefulyl and came up with slighty different notes in the second part of this counter melody. Anyone with additional information Music At The Court 1 - Van Otterdyke* - Specials a name welcome!
Most show D minor which generally has plays each B as flat. But here each B is played as a natural. Would this make the tune in D Dorian? Would Dmin and Ddor have differing chordal accompaniments? I quite like that version. The first version posted here omits the f or f entirely. To answer Steve, Is the 7th flatted? D-Aeolian would not work because the B is always natural. Of course this is folk music with different permutations, and the key can be somewhat fluid, but yes that makes Maids Of Mitchelstown - Folk Studio A - Now & Then chordal accompaniments different too.
