“The Dublin Jig”

101. The Dublin Jig - H.C. Horner, 80th year, fife, Monesseu (?-Pennsylvania), August 18th, 1960

Played on a G fife, starting it up in G and then jumping up to C. I’ve transposed it to D. I haven’t yet been able to trace any provenance for it and am adding it here to see if anyone can add anything more on this curious jig. While he repeats the last part, it’s unclear what’s intended for the previous parts. I’ve gone ahead with three parts and repeats all round.

I’d meant to say ~ "I’ve transposed it to G"… I’d also written it out in D but that’s not the version given here…
