Bold Jack Donahue

Recommended Posts

I would like to find the musical notation to the song "Bold Jack Donahue" so I can learn to play it on my Anglo Lachenal C/G concertina.

Does anyone play this song in their repetoire, and can point me in the direction for finding the notes written out so I can try to memorize it?

many heartfelt thanks!

Priscilla

I tried a search at The Session but got 92 hits! The Fiddler's Companion does better, giving "Irish, Waltz. G Major. Standard tuning. One part. O’Brien (Jerry O’Brien’s Accordion Instructor), 1949" and the following abc. Nice tune, should be straightforward on a C/G anglo, where did you find it? Sounds familiar somehow...

 

Paste the following into the C.net Convert-A-Matic abc converter to get sheet music you can print out:

 

X:1

T:Bold Jack Donoghue

M:3/4

L:1/8

R:Waltz

S:O’Brien – Jerry O’Brien’s Accordion Instructor (1949)

Z:AK/Fiddler’s Companion

K:G

I found it on a CD entitled "Our Land Our Music, Australiana Collection" cd1 (out of 2).

It is the 3rd song on the first CD.

beautiful c'tina accompaniment and nice singer. I fell in love with the tune.

thanks!
