Stan, it doesn't look as if abc2ly is maintained and it may be dropped.

I've tried a more roundabout route: abc2musicxml then musicxml2ly here:

\version "2.18.2"
% automatically converted by musicxml2ly from kesh.xml

\header {
    source = "John B. Walsh Session Tunes"
    encoder = "abc2xml version 84"
    encodingdate = "2018-06-19"
    title = "The Kesh Jig"
    }

\layout {
    \context { \Score
       autoBeaming = ##f
       }
    }
PartPOneVoiceOne = \relative d' {
    \key g \major \time 6/8 | % 1
    \mark \markup { \box { A } } \repeat volta 2 {
       d8 s8*5 | % 2

% The score definition
\score {
    <<
       \context ChordNames = "PartPOneVoiceOneChords" \PartPOneVoiceOneChords
       \new Staff <<
            \context Staff <<
                \context Voice = "PartPOneVoiceOne" { \PartPOneVoiceOne }
                >>
            >>
      
       >>
    \layout {}
    % To create MIDI output, uncomment the following line:
    % \midi {}
    }


It looks a bit different but...
