Tom Billy’s Butcher’s March

Transcribed from a recording of Molly Myers Murphy who very probably learned this setting directly from the famed Sliabh Luachra fiddle teacher Tom Billy Murphy. This setting differs slightly from the way Joey Abarta plays it on his album http://thesession.org/recordings/4437.
