Maybe someone could go round and cheer Nicholas up by performing it all night under his window. It might just be a healing experience okay, maybe not for Nicholas! Lots of steel strung harp and dulcimer. Dave Swarbrick does a good version on Swarbrick 2. Key signature: E Dorian Submitted on December 5th by litestikpilot. Cavan Ceili Band, Album), and they do it with a nice hornpipe bounce.
Others said they play it slow at first and speed up after three times, the king himself may show up and, if pleased with the rendition, improve the party. Others said they play it slow, mournful, even spooky. I like spooky on a low d whistle. I think you play it however you want to. I used the P word!! How very dare I?! Many thanks and a Happy New year Paul. Is this the one? It also occurs to me that King of the Fairies is one of those tunes that I never learnt by reading in any way, I just heard it enough and suddenly it was there under my fingers.
Thanks for the directionsI got some of it from playing along to the file on this sitebut I only have a couple of days to fil in the gaps. Thanks again Paul. The following is a a third part to The King of the Fairieslearned from singer, fiddler and English concertina player, Ruth Jepson from Lancashire. She heard it at Preston Folk Club and believes it is only played in the Preston area of Album) although she, myself and a whistle player intend to unleash it on the Mid-Wales traditional music scene shortly.
Incidentally, I have heard the first two parts played without any of the Cs sharpened. A Lancashire lassie living in Mid-Wales - very nice singer. I second that… actually, Leahy is the reason I looked this tune up. I must like it.
A good example of this tune and someone dancing is "Feet of Flames" where Michael is playing it on flute. I think he may have heared it from the singer "Johnny Moynihan " If anyone knows the poem or song and tune put together please post your comment, I would love to find a recording of it.
I can just picture the great Johnny Moynihan playing it. Thanks, john T. Thanks for making music avail to this. Compare this, from the Winder Manuscripts see andyhornby. Then again, Bonnie Prince Charlie is often referred to as "effeminate" perhaps we are on dodgy ground! Can anyone help me? How could this tune be anything less than alluring? Leahy plays it clearly as a hornpipe but with a lot of rubato. There are several places where he consistently plays "Scottish snaps" and I have scored those spots - otherwise the eighth notes are played in hornpipe fashion, albeit with much rubato.
You will note his use of D sharps in unusual places which add some tension to the tune. The first time through, he plays at about 75 bpm and then speeds up slightly to about 80 bpm the second time. The piano accompaniment is inspired with some wonderful chord progressions. The style of piano playing changes from graceful arpeggios the first time through to a bouncy dance beat the second time through.
The piano styling makes the second play through sound faster than it really is. A quick Google search led to the Leahy video. Penny has clearly not done her research well. Although the title of the track on the recording and the title of the video is "Colm Quiqley," the liner notes clearly state that Colm Quigley is a medley of three tunes - King of the Fairies, a traditional Strathspey and Colm Quigley. Colm Quigley is actually a rollicking reel composed by Leahy which deserves a transcription of The Session someday.
Jeremy lead off discussions on this rather a long time ago by being rather ambivalent on the Horslips version of King of the Faeries. Celtic Symphony still lights me up. This is a setting of the tune that works fine for flute but also for pipes.
I have heard the B part played something like this in English sessions and have a note that it is in the Roche collection under this name, but am not sure King Of The Fairies - David Curry And His Band* - My Ireland (Vinyl I got that from.
If you are playing for a stepdancer, please be aware that King is now both a traditional and non-traditional set dance - same music, but vastly different speeds. As was mentioned above fairly early on, please play the A part 3 times - one is an intro so the dancer can hear your tempo, the other 2 times the dancer will be dancing what we call the "step" same choreography on right and leftfollowed by the B part once what dancers call the "set". If playing for a traditional set dancer, the approved tempo is this is a bit slower than the other traditional set hornpipes, which are usually played at If playing for a non-traditional set dancer, the tempo is anywhere from 76 through about The slower tempo for a non-trad set dancer is needed because they are throwing in so much footwork.
It is listed in the hornpipe section. Does this have a term? The Doric mode has a kind of unusual feel. One of my favorite tunes for 35 years. I have often been confuddled by the insistence that this be played AABB at sessions. Album) most of the posts here reinforce that. Each time it was clearly taught as AAB. As a set dance the A part is played an additional time for the dancers as well. This keeps the tune moving.
I know the Dubliners popularized AABB, and session players often like consistency, but it does balance well as AAB, and is often played and recorded that way. Album) to ask, but we always play it AAB: as you say the B part is twice as long as the A part, so why play it twice?
Unless it fits a particular dance as AABBbut have never played it for dancing. I think this tune works great followed by Off to California. The dark mysterious feel of Fairies makes way for the bright sunshine of California. This feed has been running for 17 years. After the Demon King got slain by Kendra Sorenson using the legendary sword, Vasilisthe Fairy King was brought back physically by the Sands of Sanctity and began to recuperate.
In the first book of the Dragonwatch series, the Fairy King protects Seth from Dragons chasing him by temporarily allowing him to enter the Fairy Realm. He then sends him to Fablehaven and states that he is eternally gratefully and owes Seth endless favors for bringing the sword that ended the Demon King and the Fairy King's suffering.
