The Fathaby

Jig from the Isle of Man, that is used for a popular dance - the ‘B’ tune isn’t repeated because of the structure of the dance, but it is often played AABB in sessions.

So it is! Thanks very much, I didn’t know that.

I love this tune and in especially the version from the recording from Barrule…
