The Holm Band Jig

A lovely tune from Orkney isles, Scotland. It is on Wrigley Sister’s "Mither o’ the Sea" album.

I love to play it after Tobbin’s Favourite. Though the tune is in A major, it is relatively easy to get G# on the whistle.

It may be related to The Maid at the Well, but I’m not sure of the origin of the tune.

It’s also on Saltfish forty’s album ‘Netherbow’. It’s why i’m here to look it up!
