Red Haired Girl

Learned this tune from Kevin Crawford a while back, this is what he called and I couldn’t find a setting of it elsewhere. Pretty slick slip jig.

The Red-Haired Girl, X:3

From the playing of Denis Liddy & Elvie Miller.

The Red-Haired Girl, X:4

From the playing of Iontach.

Probably about as close to a basic version of the melody there is.

The first time through they do have a nice variation in the fourth bar of the A Part (going back into the A Part), which is just "Bge dBG AB/c/d".
