GUEST,Cattia Salto Lyr Req: Fiddler Of Dooney (26) RE: Lyr Req: Fiddler Of Dooney 22 Jul 20

I'm writing a post for Terre Celtiche Blog on the Fiddler Of Dooney / Il violinsita di Dooney. In addition to the Italian version of Branduardi (on the text translated by his wife Luisa Zappa) I also included the version of Sean Doyle from his first album "The Light and the Half-Light" (2004 or 2006?). I listened to the song on you-tube and I don't have the cd booklet, my question is: is the melody composed by the father or the son? I know that John did all the instrumental arrangements, being his father essentially a singer.
The melody is so "traditional" anf fit perfectly with words! Thank you
