where have you got that nice jig? or is it your own?

I think that I transcribed it from a Battlefield Band album,or maybe Ossian,I’m not sure.


I think in "Tryst" by Iain MacInness


"Ossian" recorded it a good 20 years or so before Iain.

and strictly speaking, it’s a 6/8 march, not a jig. I’m sure "dafydd" knew that, but you can’t submit marches.
