Carrickfergus - arranged for solo guitar by Dan Jones

Please note I have also arranged this work for mixed ability guitar ensemble, the score of which can be found here:

This download includes three versions of the score: 

The first with notes and TAB below.

The second with notes only.

The third with TAB only.

All three versions will be bought in the single purchase.

Full fingering suggestions (as used by the arranger) are given.

Carrickfergus is a much-loved traditional Irish song which has been recorded many times by contemporary artists, most famously, Joan Baez.

In making this arrangement I am attempting to create a work suitable for the more-advanced or concert player. My intention has been to use the original theme to construct a piece with structure and harmonic depth.

Carrickfergus is presented here in D major with a mid-way modulation to the dominant - A major.

I am excited at the idea of using well-known themes to create a concert repertoire suitable for all environments and which will appeal to guitarists and non-guitarists alike.

A film and recording of me performing the arrangement can be found in the link given on this page or at

I hope very much you enjoy playing Carrickfergus.
