The Price of My Pig

This is as the tune is given in Matt Cranitch’s ‘Irish Session Tunes’ (Ossian, 2000).

Price of My Pig

This is also on Todd Denman and Bill Dennehy’s album "Like Magic." Makes a nice set (musically and thematically) with "The Butcher’s March"!

The Pork Set

Or… put it with "The Munster Bacon"

Price of the pig?

There’s a jig I know called "The Price of the Pig", very close to the Scottish tune called "The Hills of Glenorchy", but it’s very different from this tune.

This is a different tune to the jig ‘The Price of a Pig’

See Shooglenifty’s album ‘A Whisky Kiss’. We learnt a variation of the Shooglenifty jig on Colm O’Rua’s Mandolin/Banjo Course at Sabhal Mor Ostaig in July 2003. I’ll post this other one - it’s a great tune

A version of Bold Doherty on Angelina Carberry’s An Tradisiun Beo album.

There’s a bawdy version of this jig on David Cameron’s debut album ‘Shove The Pig’s Mouth A Little Closer To The Cock’

The Price Of My Pig, X:2

From the playing of Lilt’s, on their latest album, "X".

The Price Of My Pig, X:3

From the playing of The Irish Descendants.

Titled as "No Con Test", Con probably referring to one of their band members, Con O’Brien.
