Tom Ginley’s Fancy (jig)

From the flute playing of Marcas O’Murchu, who learnt the tune from Belfast flute player Tom Ginley at a session in the seventies. Watch and listen to Marcas play the tune: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFzenjEgbhU

Ciaran Carson informs: "there were, as far as I know, only two flute-players of any prominence in Belfast, Tom Ginley and James MacMahon…. Ginley, a native of Belfast, played a silver Boehm-system flute and was fond of tricky hornpipes, tunes beyond the ken or inclination of most traditional players."
