“The Horsehoe” is a jig I learned from my friend JB Samzun (fiddle). JB learned it from John Joe Tuttle who told him it came from the playing of Patsy Geary, who had no name for it. He taught the tune to John Kelly Senior, who called it after his shop on Capel Street in Dublin, and the name stuck ever since.
I highly recommend visiting the website by Aoife Kelly at http://johnkellycapelstreet.ie/ which features a lot of information about John Kelly Sr and his music.
