Jig In The Castle

From the playing of Antóni O’Breskey & company, and, composed by Antóni O’Breskey.

Transposed from Ddor/Dmin/Dmix.

No F/F# or C/C# notes in the Ador/Amin/Amix setting to distinguish between the three modes. Tried a few as alternatives, some worked alright, some didn’t, depending on the phrase.

Antoni O’Breskey (piano), Consuelo Nerea Breschi (fiddle), Tony Byrne (guitar):
