about

The Yellow Horse – I found this jig-time song air from P.W. Joyce's Old Irish Folk Music and Song. A melody of particular antiquity; in published collections it has appeared in various forms as far back as 1809 in Edward Bunting's A General Collection of the Ancient Music of Ireland.


Sorry I am for What I Have Done is a tune from the repertoire of melodeon player Michael J. Kennedy (1900–1978) from Flaskagh Beag in County Galway. In 1923 he emigrated to Cincinnati in the United States, and spent his career there working for the Louisville and Nashville Railroad. It is a curious little jig from the 1977 LP of his playing 65 Years of Irish Music. Before launching into the tune he sings "sorry I am for what i have done, sorry I am for what i have done, sorry I am for what i have done, to marry the father instead of the son.'' I have yet to encounter these lyrics elsewhere.
