Off to the Hunt

Paul Brock heard this jig on a recording by John & Joe Fahey (on fiddle & banjo) which was recorded in the U. S. A. on 4th April 1937.

John Naughtons

Not far removed from John Naughton’s on Mary Macnamaras "Music from East Clare". (I havn’t got time to put a link on)

I believe what Mary Mac recorded as "John Naughton’s Jig" is a version of "The Jug of Brown Ale."
