Feg For A Kiss (A)

“A Feg For A Kiss” is one of the rare tunes on Tunes From Doolin not to have any connection with Doolin, I just learned it because I liked it.

I heard it from the playing of accordion player Bryan O’Leary, who cites Paddy Cronin as the source. It is a very old tune that appears as “A Feg For A Kiss” in Robert Bremner’s 1757 collection, and probably is a version of the more famous slip jig “A Fig For A Kiss”.
