Here it is as a jig. I heard it in Geantrai the other night.

And in Ddor, how I’ve played it as a jig for the last few months.

This is probably a duplication tbh, I might have made a mistake in submitting it.

My defence? I noticed that two versions as a jig and a barndance were posted the other day.

Obviously this is the same tune as the reel, but whether it merits its own submission is I guess for Jeremy to decide.

*two versions of another tune*

Clearly it does merit its own submission!

Never in doubt. ;-)

Not original….

"Stockton’s Wing" were playing this as a jig about 35 years ago. I think they may even have recorded it. It works OK.

Kenny, I quote: "Here it is as a jig. I heard it in Geantrai the other night." Leaving the typo aside, where *in* should be *on*, I never claimed it was original. I got it off the TV.

Also you’ll notice that in the reel version, my jig setting shows up in the ABC as M: 4/4, so if anything it’s better off here.
