Play MP3

Toronto based Irish accordion player Ena O'Brien picked this up this jig from a recording of Charlie Mulvihiull. Charlie recorded the tune on Atlanic Wave a 1970 LP recording he made with NY fiddler Paddy Reynolds. On that recording it is played in the key of A major. To further confuse the issue it is sometimes played in the key of D.

Charlie's son doesn't think his father composed it. In Bulmer and Sharpley (1975) the tune was titled The Kerry Jig.

It can be heard on The Galway Rambler, Ena's a recent CD.
