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.
