Jenny Picking Cockles

I’ve been playing “Jenny Picking Cockles” for many years. I first learned it from Hugh & Colm Healy’s album “Macalla na hÓige” and Terry Bingham also recorded this tune with Dermot Byrne on his album “Traditional Irish Music from Doolin, Co. Clare”. I associate this tune with my good friend Paolo Cerato as well.
