Port Sadbh

I learned this 3 parts jig from Martin Hayes Quartet album (2017). It’s played in a very "zen" mood", but not slowly. The kind of tune you may not like from the first listen, but that remains in your head after listening to it several times. (Sorry for my bad english).
Wikipedia says that Sadbh is an Irish feminine personal name. "In Irish mythology, Sadhbh (or Saba) was the mother of Oisín by Fionn mac Cumhail".

The name of Martin Hayes Quartet album is The Blue Room.

Re: Port Sadbh

Sabha (not sure how pronounced) is an Arabic woman’s name and it means "beautiful". Perhaps unconnected
with the Irish woman’s name Sadbh though. I do know that most of the inhabitants of Baltimore in County
Cork were kidnapped by pirates in the 17th C and taken in slavery to Algiers and no doubt learnt Arabic. A
highly irrelevant comment I know!
