The Copper Kettle

From ‘The Keegan Tunes, Vol. 1’-

This is the third of a set of jigs, following ‘The Thrush in the Bush’ (already submitted) and ‘O’Hanlon’s Bridge’ (recently submitted). The ABC’s that I’ve submitted have a couple of inversions for those instruments (whistles, flute) limited to 2 octaves (low D). Here’s the tune unaltered:

I started a discussion a while back on these type of ‘editorial’ changes in trad. music, so any feedback would be welcome.

Enjoy!

Oh, that’s a lovely one. Not the easiest of all, but definitely worth my time.
