Killavil Jig (The)

The Killavil Jig was one of the first tunes I learned on the tin whistle, before I even started playing the concertina. I believe I learned it from my friend Stéphane, who used to play it a good bit when he first started playing the accordion. It is a very common session tune.

A common session tune, “The Cup of Tea” is a great reel which I learned through various sessions. This version is quite standard, however I would highly recommend Tommy Peoples’ version on his album “The Quiet Glen”, I think it’s the best recording of this tune ever.
