Fanning’s

I learned “Fanning’s Jig” from the playing of Jackie Daly, who recorded it on his album “Many’s A Wild Night”. The ABC says it is in E minor but it really is a G / E minor tune.

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

“The Chattering Magpie” is a common reel in County Clare, very much associated with concertina players. I learned it from Noel O’Donoghue and Seán Vaughan back in 2015, and I actually remember that evening quite well as it was one of the first time (if not THE first time) I was playing a gig with Noel and Seán together, at O’Connor’s Pub.
