Fanning’s

I learned “Fanning’s Jig” from the playing of Jackie Daly, who recorded it on his album “Many’s A Wild Night”. The ABC says it is in E minor but it really is a G / E minor tune.

I recorded this tune as part of a set of jigs I did for the #quarantunes challenge on Facebook, see video below.
