Normally played with
The tune ‘The December wedding’ was composed to be played before this one
The section in the second part GAFAEAFA is intended to be played with no ‘bounce’ (completely evenly) to give a syncopated effect.
"Normally played with The tune ‘The December wedding’ was composed to be played before this one"

Question is, did he write this one too I wonder???

The midi supplied here is wrong

Brit In The Liffey, X:2
Somebody played this unusual jig at our session last week (The Bear in Camberwell), but the setting on here only has two parts, and there’s a third on all the recordings I’ve found. It appears to be by Tomas Lynch, but I’ve taken this setting (mostly) from Sam Proctor’s album, ‘Natural Progression’.
