I learned this jig from the playing of piper Pat Mitchell, from his 1976 album (Topic 12TS294). In the liner notes, he mentions learning it from Willie Clancy. I like to play this on the fiddle as the second tune of a medley with Jackson’s Morning Brush, another piping tune. I love the F natural in the last line, and I also like to sharpen some of the C naturals. All in all, a great tune to try on the fiddle.

Hmmm, it’s written with a key signature of one sharp, which makes it look like A dorian, but the single F sharp is a pickup note and the single F natural is in the body of the tune. I b’leeve I woulda written it with a key sig of no sharps or flats and let the F sharp be the real accidental. It really sounds more like Aeolian than Dorian to me.

Of course, if you go messing around with sharping the C’s, people could get hurt and then it won’t matter what you call it.

You’re probably right about possible injuries from too many sharpened C’s, in which case the tune would better be called The Maiden Who JIgged It In Stilettos.

Dance Music of Willie Clancy , 66?

Different name

when trying this tune out it occured to me that it is more than likely a different version of one of my favourites BRYAN O’LYNN no.221 in o’neills 1001
