I picked this up from Karen Tweed's playing, slight variation on the A part where instead of |BAG Bcd|edc efg, it's |BGG Bcd|ecc efg, and likewise the next time 'round, although it's a trivial difference really.

Jackson’s Jig

I have a recording of an early live concert by the Bothy Band. They play Jackson’s Jig in the first set. Matt Molloy is with them.
