Butcher’s March (The)

I learned “The Butcher’s March” from Yvonne Casey and Terry Bingham. They recorded this jig before “The Old Favourite” on the great CD in support of the Doolin Coastguards, back in 1994. This version is a bit different from what is usually heard, but I wanted to post this nice version from Terry and Yvonne.
