Ahah.. Oh man, it’s the Spicy McHaggis Jig from the Dropkick Murphy’s!

Cheers and sleep,
Armand

lol first time ive seen a murphys song on this site…

Sounds for me like a jig version of the clumsy lover

A jig version of "The Clumsy Lover" is exactly what it is, as recorded by De Danaan a long time before the Dropkick Murphys, whoever they are.

Well yes, with two parts, it’s still fun~!

Cheers and sleep,

The Spicy

Does anyone have the other parts?

Dropkick murphys(DKM) are a punk rock/irish band from Boston. Spicy McHaggis play highland pipes in the band and they named a tune after in him. guess the murphy’s aren’t too popular overseas or many other places.

This should be in A mixolydian but since there are no Gs it doesn’t matter. Just wanted to show off :).

The De Danann version

The De Danann version seems to have an interesting history, as it seems Frankie Gavin had the tune from the fiddler Dermot McLaughlin, who in turn had it from Iain Macleod the mandolin player, formerly of Shugglenifty. This version was created by Iain Macleod but it seems that other independent versions have appeared in the Highland piping fraternity.
