I like all the low growly notes in Jig for Jimmy, and unexpected little phrases like |fdB dcB| and |cGc ege| all fit together into a well-formed tune. Liz's tunes remind me of Ed Reavy tunes--great stuff.

Jig for Jimmy

Liz Kane wrote this tune in 2003 for her maternal grandfather. She and her sister Yvonne play Jig for Jimmy in a set with Betsy’s Delight (https://thesession.org/tunes/4532), also penned by Liz, on their Under the Diamond cd.
