Jackson’s Morning Breeze

I don’t know where this tune originated from (although the name "Jackson" seems to be associated with a number of tunes) but it’s fairly popular at sessions in Clare. At some sessions it’s followed by the 2 Christy Barry jigs which makes for a nice combination.

Man! What a sweet jig. It reminded me of the music they used to play at wedding when I was a kid. Wow

Seamus Connolly’s

Kevin Griffin names this tune "Seamus Connolly’s" on his album "Traditional Music from Doolin".

Another version

Here’s how I learned it. A friend gave me the dots (in E, as I think it’s played on the Kevin Griffin album with Sharon Shannon on box), I transposed to D, and here’s how I remember it three years since last looking at it:

I also heard or read somewhere that Seamus has no idea how his name got associated with this tune.
