The Silver Hand

I transcribed this slow double jig from Liz Knowles great album, Making Time. At one of Open The Door For Three’s house concert at our place a couple of years ago, Liz mentioned that it was composed by a friend of hers, but I haven’t found the name anywhere to assign credit. This notation is roughly the version she plays the first time through on the album. The rest of the track is replete with wonderful variations of the tune. We’re starting to play this one at the sessions in Houston.

Was just informed this was composed by Johnny Brennan, fiddler & guitar player from the Philadelphia area.
