A fine Cape Breton Jig

I combine this second after King of the Piper’s most of the time. I then usually hit a Donegal Jig of sorts. I am going to have to put up the some discography for this piece. I found it off a nice recording called "That’s What you Get". - I’ll look for the other details soon enough. In the meantime - enjoy a little different flavor.

Which King of the Pipers, Mark? There’s so many.


Ah, one of my favorite tunes ever, that King of the Pipers. Thanks, Mark.


Who I learned it from.

Wendy MacIsaac Played the version of man of the moon I posted here. She plays with a bit of grit but I get a kick out of her playing.
