Jimmy McHugh

I was looking at the two "McHugh’s Jig" entries in Bulmer & Sharpley and, looking for recorded examples in my collection, I came across this jig played by Bobby MacLeod on "Maestro MacLeod" (1977). Apparently MacLeod and McHugh were great friends and whenever Bobby had to stay in Glasgow he stayed with Jimmy. This jig is a MacLeod composition, in Irish style in tribute to McHugh.
