Old John’s

“Old John’s” has been one of my favourite jigs for many years. I learned it from a recording of Tommy Peoples and also associate it with Tony MacMahon, the great accordion player from Clare.

You can watch the video I made of “Old John’s” below, and I also recorded this jig as part of a set I did for the #quarantunes challenge on Facebook, see video below as well.
