Willie Coleman’s

Willie Coleman’s is a very common jig. It was one of the first tunes I ever learned on tin whistle and was taught to me by my friend Tom Delany, a great piper now based in Dingle, Co. Kerry. I also associate “Willie Coleman’s” with the playing of the late Kitty Hayes’ in particular, who was a wonderful concertina player from Co. Clare.
