Subject: Music for song The Tinkerman's Daughter
From: Jan in Oz
Date: 01 Sep 99 - 12:40 AM

I have the lyrics to the song The Tinkerman's Daughter but I don't know how the melody goes. I heard someone sing it at an Irish session once in Sydney and really liked it. Does anyone out there have any suggestions as to how I could find the music for it?

Rick Lee recorded it--twice. One version is on his album "Natick" and a second is on his album "There's Talk about a Fence." Both albums are on the Waterbug label (www.waterbug.com). The second version has a more complete story. The disturbing news I must present to you is that each version uses a different tune. But if you get both of Rick Lee's CD's, you'll have two tunes for the Tinkerman's Daughter. When he and Bob Zentz were in Washington, DC earlier in August doing a concert for the Folklore Society of Greater Washington, Rick put together an interesting hybrid--singing the first version, which has an abbreviated story but a tune that I find more interesting, and then segueing into the second version with its different tune, but picking up where the first version's story left off.

THE TINKERMAN'S DAUGHTER is included on Niamh Parson's album "Loosely Connected", which available from Green Linnet. The liner notes list the composer as M. McConnell and the publisher as Elm Grove Music. As I understand it, this is a modern song written in a traditional format. I only know of this one tune for it which is quite haunting.

I hope this information is of help.

Best,

Meg

Thank very much to everyone who replied. Sorry it's taken so long for me to get back but I've been sick since I posted the thread and have only just got back to work today.

Thanks to Charlie, Meg and Bill for the info re recordings - I'll try to get as many as possible. That's interesting about the two tunes, Charlie - I wonder which one it is that I heard. Also intersting that it's a modern song - I got the impression it was a real oldie - thanks Meg. And Bill and Allison, what does it mean when it says "Shop - Houston/Voices"? Does it mean you have/work in a music shop?

Yes Barbara, I'd LOVE to have that transcription of the longer song's tune, whenever you get a chance. Blessings to you too!

And thank you Alison for your version. It's very tantalising cos I'm still a novice at this computer/internet stuff and it'll take me a while to get it sorted out.

It's so exciting to be able to do this, isn't it? Just to put a question out there and find a bunch of people from so many different, far away places who know about it and share your interest - what a buzz!

Lovely to meet you all.

Jan

Danny Doyle has a lovely recording of (all his stuff is great!) on one of his more recent CD's, "Under A Connemara Moon" REGO, #CDR3039. Great CD, BTW. I particularly like "The Rose of Saigon." Very powerful, & done in flawless taste & voice. Really something

Here's the tune for the long version; tho a friend tells me that the end of each line is 5/4 (one beat more). This is past the ability of the program to transcribe, I believe. That is to say, the first line is "When rooks ripped down at eventide" and the word 'eventide' is held for one extra count.
Clear as mud? Then buy the CD.
Blessings,
Barbara

Not a tune I recognize - sounds like a hymn.

Jack, the clever little translation device that I used at the time failed to recognize the difference between the keys of C and F which resulted in a very odd melody. If you would like a midi or the dots, PM me, and I'll ship it off to you. The version I have is the long one with words by Sigerson Clifford and tune by Mike Dennehy.
Blessings,
Barbara

Is this 'The Red Headed Anne' song? If it is, Ian Bruce does a cracking job of it.
