An old jig…

Taught to me by Armand, from the collection Tunes of the Munster Pipers. Of course, given the finnicky nature of collecting and cataloguing it’s tough to say just how old the tune might be, but the open phrase of the B part in particular feels somewhat archaic. At the very least, it is a pleasant and lovely G major jig!

A most funtyastically delicious tune, indeed. Tight!

Cheers,
Armand
