Mac’s Fancy

I learned Mac’s Fancy from the playing of Josephine Marsh, who recorded it on the great compilation album “The Sanctuary Sessions”, recorded live at Cruise’s Pub in Ennis. This jig is usually played after “Winnie Hayes’ Jig” around Doolin. I also associate this tune with Hugh Healy, who I heard playing the set mentioned above at the concertina recital in Miltown Malbay during the Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy.
