The Little Black Pea

The Little Black Pea

I heard a recording of Micho Russell playing this jig on a RTE video posted on YouTube. I cannot find the tune anywhere, though. I will post it to thesession today but am hoping someone reading this may know something of the tune’s provenance and structure. Micho played it as AB, but it strikes me now that it would also be just as fine in the traditional AABB structure. Anyone? Thanks!

Thanks very much. I couldn’t tell, even after listening to Micho several times, whether he was saying "pea" or "pig." I finally decided, incorrectly as it turns out, that it was the former.
