“Jerry Holland’s Jig” ~ C: Howie MacDonald

This transcription is from Howie’s playing of his tune. I also enjoy playing it a step lower in G Major…

Thanks baylady, I was thinking about him when playing this and that was part of the reason to add it here, in memory. A lot of folk respected him and there are several compositions dedicated to Jerry. This jig can be found on at least three recordings, two by the composer Howie MacDonald: "The Ceilidh Trail", track 2 & "A Taste of Cape Breton", track 2, and on Colin Grant’s recording "Colin Grant", track 5…

And, also in "Jerry Holland: The Second Collection" ~ page 84, tune #227
