Another Liz Carroll tune

Last bar of A part should be |Bee BAB GEE:|

One of my favourite slip jigs. Blazin’ Fiddles do a lovely rendition.

Re: For The Love Of Music

I agree that the Blazin’ Fiddles version of this tune is great, especially the last two times they play it, when it’s in a higher key.
