Pipe On The Hob (The)

The Pipe On The Hob is a very old tune that is quite common in sessions around Doolin. I associate this jig with Christy Barry and James Devitt, but I think I first learned it from a recording of Gavin Whelan, the great whistle player from Dublin.

There is another jig called “The Pipe On The Hob” (but it is in A minor) which is also quite popular. I’ll post it soon!
