Mary Shore

Requested by "lamh trom". I’ve only ever come across this jig on "Broken Hearted I’ll Wander" by Dolores Keane & John Faulkner, played on that recording by that great fiddler Kieran Crehan. I’ve posted it in G, but I think he plays it in F. According to sleeve notes, it is a composition of fiddler Larry Redigan.

The Mouse in the Church

This is a composition of Larry Redican’s. Redican gave the tune to L.E. McCullough, who interviewed him in the 1970s, as "The Mouse in the Church." Others of his tunes are also known by more than one name or were composed in F and now current in G.
