I got this one from a session in Hanover, Germany. It is the first tune in a set they call "Dina’s Jigs". Dina is a musician from Israel who lived in Hanover for some time and used to play those jigs.

The set consists of: This one / Under the willow she is sleeping / Slated house. I Will add the other ones later.

Thanks for a lovely tune. Mike Rafferty and Willie Kelly also recorded this jig. "Fasten the Leg on Her" is the title they have for the tune, but it’s different from what’s been already on this site: https://thesession.org/tunes/2838 According to the notes, it was recorded by Limerick-London flute player Paddy Taylor.

I know this tune as The Coast Road. I learned it from Brendan McCabe of the Fodhla Ceili Band. It is a common tune in some of the sessions I frequent, but have rarley heard it anywhere else. This is the version we play - the only significant difference is the ending of the second part.

Mickey McConnell’s

Learned this from a guitarist I play with, he has no idea where he picked it up from, I’ve searched high and low for it. Lovely tune at any rate, maybe someone can ID it more properly.
