The Kilfinnane

2nd Jig from track 8 of Edel Fox and Neil Byrne’s CD "The Sunny Banks". There is already a Kilfinane jig which is different so this will link to the recording as it is spelled there with three n’s as per the CD.

Thanks Slainte - hope you’re keeping well.

Duplicated and misnamed

This jig is actually called Mama’s Pet: http://thesession.org/tunes/8646

Peter Carberry recorded this tune and The Kilfinane Jig as different tunes on his solo album "Traditional Irish Music from Co. Longford." Edel Fox and Neil Byrne might have learned them from Peter’s playing, and got their titles mixed up.

Donough, please post your transcription as the second setting of Mama’s Pet. Yours is better!

Slainte - That Mama’s Pet you linked to has no C# and sounds very different unless its just a very bad transcription :) I would need to listen to that recording to see if what I have transcribed is really that tune
Maybe just post a link there to this tune
