I Ne’er Shall Wean Her

“I Ne’er Shall Wean Her” is a beautiful jig that I learned from Christy McNamara’s album “The House I Was Reared In”. Christy is an amazing photographer as well and he has taken some great photos of musicians over the past 30 years.

I recorded this tune for a “30 tune-a-day” challenge back in 2015, see the video below.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment Maggie, glad you enjoyed this tune. I just picked up my concertina there and after playing this jig I went into “Headwood Crossing”, a lovely jig in C major. Aminor to Cmajor is a nice key change I find 🙂
