Jig composed by Newfoundland legend Emile Benoit.

Just added a setting for the way I play it on A whistle. The adapting simply involves taking the last two bars of the first part and the entire second part down an octave. (Note my parts are reversed from the first setting here!) I seem to have the fourth bar of the second part differently than Kelly Russell plays it, not sure if I picked that up from someone else or if it’s just tune drift.
