It’s taken me a long time to get round to posting this jig. One of my favourite recordings is “Winds Of Change”, by Geraldine McGowan and Anne Conroy, recorded when they were both members of the Dublin band “Oisin”. This is one of the tunes on that recording, the only place I’ve ever come across it. It’s a lovely, simple, melodic jig, composed by Paddy O’Brien, the Paddy from Co. Offaly, now living in America. Deserves to be played more.
