Kerry Jig

This is a G version of the Whisting Postman posted by Will.

Album References

In Coleman Disc 2 it is refering to the Kerry Reel and not the same
tune as above. Also am not quite sure if it is the same Kerry Jig as is on the Paddy Keenan album. I suspect not.

Learned this version off the CD The Smoky Chimney by Gerry Harringhton,Eoghan O’Sullivan and Paul De Grae.
