Re: Village

Rietmann’s claim that this jig doesn’t exist anywhere else is not accurate. Michael Coleman recorded it, with parts reversed, as ‘Cherish the Ladies’ — he recorded 3 jigs of that family: the big D one, the 2-parter known nowadays as Pathway to the Well, and this tune, paired with The Humours of Ennistymon. That latter recording was released in the big Shannachy 2-CD set. According to Alan Ng, it was also recorded as The Humours of Cappa by Leo Molloy’s Siamsa Gaedheal Band in 1929; this is also now released on Oldtime Records’ compilation "If There Weren’t Any Women in the World". In modern times this tune has been recorded at least twice, first by Matt Molloy, John Party and Arty McGlynn (RIP) on "Pathway to the Well"; and by Patrick Street on "On the Fly". Both are under the title Cherish the Ladies.

Alan Ng also lists this tune as #779 in O’Neill’s 1850 (1903) and #56 in his 1001 Gems (1907). Note that this is listed separately from the big D version of Cherish the Ladies (#730 in 1850, #29 in 1001). It also happens to be tune #49 in Bulmer and Sharpley, Vol. 3.
