Single Jig

Source: The Mountain Road by Various Artists
Transcription: gian marco pietrasanta

I’d prefer to play this as a slide rather than a single jig because of the phrasing.

Gan Ainm

This slide was played by the Triskell Ceiliband in Heidelberg for a Ceili at the first October weekend in 2014.They had no name for this tune.The dancers really liked the tune.Has anybody a name for the tune?

New version Kevin McHugh’s from playing of Ryan Murphy

Version 4 submitted above comes from the playing of Ryan Murphy at the Ivory session in Glasgow. He doesn’t always include the low: "Ddc" in the second bar of the 2nd part, instead playing a longer high: "d2c".

Alot of the triplet groups starting on A notes in the second part he rolls

I like the lift this version has with the repeated high a’s in the first part, and I thought others might too.

Kevin McHugh’s, X:5

This version in F is based on the second tune of the Adam and Eve set on At the Racket’s Mirth-Making Heroes.

Kevin McHugh’s, X:6

as played by Paddy Callaghan on BBC’s Travelling Folk in a great set of slides.
(The funny second time bar in the B part is a variation of the last bar that he plays sometimes - great ascending riff to a repeat of the tune)
