Another useful addition to the corpus of tunes about "Kitty" (Kitty’s Wedding, etc). We now know her surname is McGee, but whether that is her maiden or married name we don’t know.
A lively simple tune, useful for beginners.

I play this jig after Kilkenny Girl, it is another jig that has been around for a long time. It would be nice to hear played more at sessions.

Very Good!!

awesome tune!!o tooles play this and it is amazin!they put into hornpipe and reel time also!!

I actually learned this tune in D Mix. Just make the Cs natural and you’ll have it. Makes a fun set with Hunt the Squirrel in G and some other tune I haven’t IDed yet (learned it as Down with the French, but I think that’s wrong). Great little tune.
