Brendan Tonra’s other jig…

This composition of Brendan Tonra was taught by Catherine McEvoy to a flute class in Ballyvourney at Hammy’s "Flute Gathering" earlier this year. Catherine, of course, had a lot of variations when she performed this at the tutor’s concert, but this is what I consider to be the basic version.
This may well show up as being on a lot of recordings, but it is much more likely that the tune on those recordings will be the better known jig, his best-known composition, inexplicably posted here as "Tony Rowe’s".

This is a very close cousin to the "other" Bendan Tonra’s (Tony Rowe’s), maybe even a variation of it, albeit with some fairly wide departures from the other tune. Even so, it is instantly recognizable if you are familiar with the other one.
