Head Lifter

I hope this jig is not already in thesession. Anyway I can’t find it so I have decided to post it. This version comes from a friend who has learned it during a banjo workshop with Joanna Boyle from Síoda in Tocane this summer. The title, “head lifter” comes from comhaltas live programme n°433/2. Another friend of mine knows this tune under the name “dancing in the puddles”. Anybody knows the origine of this lovely tune ?

Re: Head Lifter

This Tune Was definitely written by Damien O’Kane, this is a nice version of it by Mohsen Amini, Tomás Callister & Adam Rhodes (last tune) they play it in C.

This jig is on Damien O’Kane and David Kosky’s album The Mystery Inch. It is followed by another jig - Bowelshifter.
