Betsy’s Delight

This tune was written in 2003 by Liz Kane for her maternal grandmother. It’s the second tune in a set, following Jig for Jimmy, written by Liz for her maternal grandfather.

A sweet, dark little jig, played with heart. The sort of tune people say, "I wish I’d written it."

With Jig for Jimmy

I’ve posted Jig for Jimmy, for the complete set as played on Under the Diamond (track 9). See: https://thesession.org/tunes/4534
