Kilmaley Jig (The)

I learned The Kilmaley Jig from Terry Bingham’s CD “Traditional Irish Music from Doolin, Co. Clare”, which is one of my all-time favourites. He follows this tune with “Billy McCormick’s“, another lovely jig. Kilmaley is a parish here in Co. Clare, close to Ennis.

Behind The Bush In The Garden

I first heard this tune on John Williams’ first album, on which he calls it “The Tidy Woman” and plays it more like a jig. It is more common as a slide though, under the name “Behind The Bush In The Garden”. I learned if from the Doon Ceili Band.
