A four-part jig composed by Jim Johnstone and recorded on his 1986 album ‘Government Warning’ (Temple Records), from where I have notated it. It is named after Fergie MacDonald and, like most Scottish jigs, should be played with a slight "dottedness". It has crossed my mind that the A part of the tune might be in honour of Fergie’s famous stammer.
😉 The gauntlet is down. It’s finally Jim Johnstone week. Thanks for this one Nigel, appreciated… And I’m all smiles. All I’m missing is a good single malt…
Well I’ve got a bottle of Yorkshire Golden Sheep pale ale as a nightcap. Mmmm.
Rub salt in the wounds… I’m settling in with a ozzie Shiraz. The wife is in love with meaty reds.
I’ve another jig of Jim’s for the weekend. I wonder if anyone else will contribute?
