Banks of Newfoundland (The)

“The Banks of Newfoundland” is a very nice jig I heard during the Russell Weekend 2013 with Christy Barry and Terry Bingham. Terry told me he got it from John Blake, Lamond Gillespie and Mick Leahy’s wonderful album “Traditional Irish Music From London”. On the album, it is followed by another great jig called”Drummond Castle”, and that’s the way Terry & Christy also play the set.
