Fairhaired Boy (The)

I learned “The Fairhaired Boy” from my friend Johannes in Switzerland, a great flute player. This is also a jig I associate with Charlie Piggott (accordion), who recorded on the album “The Lonely Stranded Band” with Miriam Collins (concertina) and Joe Corcoran (bouzouki).

He recorded it with The Bothy Band and also on his album with Tommy O’Sullivan “The Long Grazing Acre”. Josephine Marsh also recorded a very nice version of this tune on the album “To Meet A Friend” with Cyril O’Donoghue.
