The Hag By the Fire

From O’Neill’s Dance Music of Ireland, #773. By the feel of it, she must have been a very lively hag!

The Details section seem to indicate that though near 4,000 recordings have been entered already in this database, none of these artists have recorded this tune!

Well, then…

Let’s get together, record it and be the first! :)
