Maids of Palmyra by Vincent McGrath

A bright jig from the pen of Vincent McGrath. Again, the sleeve notes are not at hand, I’ll post them up the next time I have them handy.

11 years later : from the sleeve notes -
“I didn’t have a name for this tune until I played it for my McGrath cousins while visiting them in the town of Palmyra, New York. I refrained from using the title “Old” in the title, as they suggested”.
