"The Kerry Dance" - John McCormack and others on YouTube, and two (possibly) dulcimer-friendly arrangements

... but if you want to hear the trombone duet, you'll have to find it on YouTube yourself!

The standard by which all others are measured (with what looks like a very nice landscape from Co. Kerry in the video clip, no less), the old 78 by John McCormack - Kerry Dance. Irish music:

French jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli and traditional Irish fiddler Frankie Gavin perform a jam session on a very old Irish Melody:

The Kerry Dance - Atar Trio & Yeela Avital. An Irish song performed in a live concert in Tel Aviv, June 2009. "Scottish fantasy" - special concert with Atar Piano Trio and Soprano Yeela Avital. Ofer Shelley - piano, Tanya Beltser - violin, Marina Kats - cello, Yeela Avital - Sopran.

Background on "The Kerry Dance," James T. Molloy and tab for a diatonic dulcimer tuned D-F#-A arranged by Merv Rowley at looks like a very nice arrangement in 6/8 time
