Thread Name: Paul Brady's version of Arthur McBride
Subject: RE: Paul Brady's version of Arthur McBride
I see from Brendy's post above that he reckons Paul Brady uses an Open G tuning . That would probably (though not necessarily) mean that he sings this in G. Does he really sing this in G ? Seems a hell of a high key to sing Arthur McBride in ...

Perhaps someone who has the CD could verify the actual key ?

Like Rosie, I too have a vivid memory of Paul Brady being absolutely spellbinding, at Cambridge Festival in 1976, although it is "The Lakes of Pontchartrain" that sticks in my mind.
