Billy First’s Jig

A fantastic Jig, fits really well on the pipes.

Very Different

This setting is very different to what is on this data base, enough to make it a new tune.

Sorry JACKB these tunes are the same one except that they are in different keys: 326 is in key of A (not D as stated); 2313 is in the key of C. Certainly not a NEW tune.
The youtube clip gives the title as “Tommy Cunniffe’s” (at least I presume the title on the clip refers to the first tune). I won’t add it as an alternative title because I am not sure. What thinks you “celtic marine”?

Tommy Cunniffe’s

Hiya Hetty,

I think “Tommy Cunniffe’s” refers to the set as a whole, as Lunasa often does that with their sets. I actually have a workshop with Mr. Crawford tomorrow, so I’ll ask him.

Tommie Cunniffe’s

Heard Kevin and Cillian play this last night. Awesome! Introduced the set as Billy First’s-Burning Snowball-Road to the Reel jig. The last one being written by Tommie Cunniffe. Lively!
