The Quiet Man Fight Song

Post by StargazerTony » Sun Apr 22, 2018 9:55 pm

Not exactly music of the British Isles but, in 1951 there was a movie called. "The Quiet Man" with John Wayne , Maureen O'Hara, and Barry Fitzgerald. It was a great character study set in Ireland and in the movie there was a fight and that fight had music that would be perfect for an accordion bass solo, at least the theme of if it would. Anyone know where I could get the score?

I believe the tune in the film ( if I am listening to the right one) is based on the tune "The Rakes of Mallow", which should be easily available.

A search on the internet produced several sources although I haven't specifically found a score for accordion.

Thank you! That's just what I'm looking for. I'll arrange a version of it for accordion and post it here.
