Old John’s

“Old John’s” has been one of my favourite jigs for many years. I learned it from a recording of Tommy Peoples and also associate it with Tony MacMahon, the great accordion player from Clare.

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