hi,jocklet - you’ve posted one of my favourite jigs but i was wondering where you picked it up from or first came across it.
i know it from the frankie kennedy mairead n
An Fathach Tireannach
I learned this tune about fifteen years ago .I recorded it in a session in Antwerp,other than that I don’t know much about it,and I’ve never heard it in a session since then.It is a simple tune,but memorable all the same. Jocklet
A nice example of how a good tune can arise out of basically four notes (A-D), with brief excursions to high and low Es.
You posted this yourself last year in a different key. Did you realise it was the same tune? https://thesession.org/tunes/1992
