This jig is another fine composition of Offaly flute player John Brady. I first heard it on Mike Rafferty’s latest recording "Speed 78," but the transcription here is based on the Brady family’s playing: http://www.heartbeatcity.ie/product-detail/102969/BRADY+FAMILY+THE/THE+VIEW+ACROSS+THE+VALLEY
I actually haven’t got their album yet, so I’d be grateful if someone could add the story behind this jig.
I’ve just come an interesting interview with John Brady on RTE: http://dynamic.rte.ie/quickaxs/209-rte-latesession-2007-07-22.smil (starts around 40:50)
From The Late Session Programme Listings 2007: http://www.rte.ie/radio1/thelatesession/1121129.html
From around 52:10 he talks about the origin of this jig: Fr. John Brady was the first cousin of John Brady the flautist and went to Nigeria as a young priest. The jig was composed to celebrate the father’s golden jubilee. Don’t miss the family’s lovely playing of the jig set which follows.
