GUEST,Peter Laban tune on padraig o keeffes statue (13) RE: tune on padraig o keeffes statue 01 Nov 18


I looked at your links since I posted above Freddy. It is most likely sandman saw the plaque at the house on Glountane Cross and confused it in his mind for a 'statue'. I don't remember or find any evidence of any tune on the only statue of POK in Scartaglen and there doesn't seem to be any music on the monument in Castleisland.

O'Keeffe's notation system used the spaces between the staff lines to represent the strings of the fiddle with the numbers indicating the fingers. It's not very hard to translate into notes. At least one book containing fascimiles of a collection of his notations has been published.
