Mystery Jig .. ? - Dick Glasgow - 28-09-2016

Does anyone know this Jig?

I was asked its name recently but names are not my strong point.

Sounds Irish to me, but maybe not. 

Mystery Jig

Cheers,
Dick

Cannot access this tune, Dick.  Soundcloud comes up with an error message when I click on your link.

John, I think that track may have been set to ~ Private

Hopefully it is accessible now.  Smile

Cheers,
Dick

Just learned that it's called ~ The Maid at the Well!

Thanks folks.
Dick

Nice tune, Dick.

it would go well along with The Hearty Lads of Ballymoat. Some similarities in structure.

And, thanks to a note in TheSession's page on this tune, I now know where the tune for "Arthur McBride" came from.


RE: Mystery Jig .. ? - JAJ - 30-09-2016

Mmm. Which version of Arthur McBride?     Wink 

It sounds slightly like an Up tempo version I know but not quite. However, the lyrics would fit in easily around this melody too.

I see that it's also known as "The Blackthorn Stick" by pipers but it's not really like the BS I know.

Nice tune, but agree with JAJ, no resemblance to either Arthur McBride or BS as I know them, other than the time signature!
