The Kesh Jig - by Leo Kretzner w the Old Grey Cats


musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:01:51
description:
An old favorite here, The Kesh (or Kincora) Jig, key of G. Greatly popularized in the US by the immortal Boys of the Lough.

And, for the first time on video - surveillance tapes possibly excepted - The Old Grey Cats: me, Alan Davis, fiddle/mandolin, and Roy Durnal, bass/bodhran (drum). Video kindly made by Gregg Schneeman, of bowed psaltery fame.


Dulcimer is tuned, from treble to bass: usual D - G - D + an added, lower G. It's a hybrid tuning between standard and baritone dulcimers and has great bass sound. (Strings, same order: 0.011, 0.017, 0.028, 0.036)

We were in Claremont's Memorial Park, Friday 10/9/20. Claremont has a mask wearing ordinance, so the other Cats are being more law abiding than me. I wore mine the rest of the time, honest. Yes, my hair is 'Covid Style.'

Thanks for posting this, Leo. I've been meaning to work on it but it's so much easier knowing what it's supposed to sound like.
