Jackie Small’s

“Jackie Small’s” is a jig that I learned from Terry Bingham during the Russell Memorial Weekend back in 2015, and I believe he got that tune from the playing of De Dannan. It also features on a great album called “The Bank of Turf” by Tommy Fitzharris (flute) and Donal McCague (fiddle). Tommy is an amazing flute and concertina player and a regular visitor to Doolin, he is always a great addition to any session he joins!

I recorded this tune on the accordion back in 2015, you can watch the video below.
