Cat’s Meow (The)

The Cat’s Meow is a wonderful jig composed by Joanie Madden, the great Irish-American flute and whistle player and leader of Cherish The Ladies. It is quite a common tune nowadays and I learned it from Aine O’Donoghue and Aine Griffey, two wonderful young musicians from Kilfenora who play concertina and fiddle respectively.
