This is a kind of silly sounding tune.

Dingle Regatta / Regatta An Daingin

It can be fun to play around with the melody in that third part to really bring out that silliness. On each of those long notes somebody stands up to play it. If the tune is going fast enough, this can look pretty ridiculous. Ah, the silliness of it all. Yeah, I guess it is actually in the key of G. All three of them? This sort of thing seems to be common, the G tunes with the sharpened Cs. But the bars are still too many, i think. For some unknown reason anyone who has anything to do with Morris dancing is likely to stand up during the third part of this yelling “Da da da ditty da”.

I find that if the opening phrase is played D-B-D instead of D-C -D then it rules out all confusion as to the key and makes it a straightforward composition in G. Second part I play an octave down mandolin or guitar. The Pogues play this.


The Dingle Regatta

They play the C part quite differently though. During the third part, in our session there will usually be a few people who sing: Chris Droney plays a two part version of this tune on his album “The Fertile Rock”. He plays the third part of this version as the first of his own and the B part of his own is the second part of the one posted here.

You can see the following comment about the name of this slide here: Can anyone let me know the name of this slide or if I am so lucky someone give me the sheet music for same? There are only two parts, the usual first part you mentioned and a different second part, no third part.

Perhaps it is the version you seek. Here is an interesting variation for the C part: I achieved embarassed shuffles and nervous looks at a session in N Wales or close over Christmas. I dlngle that as a success.

Tiz Dingle Regatta – not Dingles Regatta. Tune version 4 above is an early 19th rsgata version in G majorcalled “Garcon Volage” trans. I diingle added the repeat signs. William Winter was a village shoemaker in Somerset, a fiddle player possibly also a flautistplaying in the church band church organs were expensive and uncommon in those days and for village dances and festive occasions. During he compiled his tune book of over tunes, the manuscript of which was lost but in rediscovered in a London second hand bookshop.


The manuscript has been scholarly researched and edited by Geoff Woolfe, and published in by the Halsway Manor Society, Crowcombe, Somerset. There is a lot of history associated with this music.

Regarding some bonkers session performances of Dingle Regatta I am quite content to remained seated and regafa quiet, relying on my age card. This was written by Tom Billy Murphy of Ballydesmond, and was a very popular slide in the area.

I know he did not call it the Dingle Regatta, however. Joe Joyce went over from Boston and picked up the jumping as well as the tune name.

I suppose a lot can happen in 20 years, but I have to wonder, where the heck did this stuff come from? If you are a member of The Session, log in to add a comment.

Who was responsible for the 3 part version of this tune? Was it Sean O Riada? This is mostly V1 with 2 small note changes but spread across 6 lines instead of 3 for old eyes! Tunes Recordings Sessions Events Discussions help contact links donate.
