Three Deer And A Hare

I got this cracking jig from this youtube of Liz and Yvonne Kane.

For whistlers, you can use a c whistle and play this if you like…..

Three Deer And A Hare

The second tune is a cracker too, I’m submit it tomorrow if it’s not already here. Does anyone know if the Kanes have any recording? I was searching online but couldn’t find any.

Kane Sisters.

Sorry, cancel that, just found them!

It’s lame dear

Hey! This is a crackin jig alright! It has the hallmarks of an authentic old fashion driving old tune yet presumably has been only recently composed? …By?
Still, I think there is something lame about that 2d part:
… |ecB dBA|B2d dBA|B3 DEF|AdB AFD|EFE E2:| ??
doesn’t feel quite right: misplaced notes or stresses?
Here’s a quick fix suggestion -or two- for those who might agree with my little misgiving:
