Tatter Jack Walsh

“Tatter Jack Walsh” is a tune I learned from the playing of Micho Russell and his brother Gussie. They recorded it as a tin whistle duet on the LP “The Russell Family” back in 1975. There is also a nice variation of the second part that I learned from Noel O’Donoghue (I play the third time around in the video below). This jig is a common session tune in the area.
