Contentment Is Wealth (jig)

There are 2 distinct (or distantly related?) tunes known by this name, but I believe this is the more common one. I picked it up from the playing of Leeds Ceili Band recorded more than 10 years ago. Brian Rooney recorded a very similar version on the box, citing Paddy Killoran as the source.

The other one’s more common in sessions I go to.

Keyboard

If a Cape Bretoner tells you to play the Golden Keyboard, they mean this one.

No. The other "Contentment is Wealth" is the one played as "the Golden Keyboard" in Cape Breton.
