Three part jig thats like a tounge twister for the fingers.  Ive wondered about the title as far as what it is referring to. At first I was wondering if it meant something like... good times at Ennistymon..or could be a smell from Ennistymon.  dunno.maybe fog inspired?  a general good vibe felt there?  After reading this Im thinking maybe the waters found there?  thoughts?

First, thought it sounded like a whole story in that Jig - a set all in itself.  Then I realized there was another - where it turned darker.  So, Monaghan Jig is a 4-part jig (fiddlecastro)? 

 

Love it - TWO LONG JIGS!  Now on my OWL (thinking I should've never started another list)! 

Here's a tutorial for "Monaghan Jig" by Duncan Cameron - love his tutorials. 

 

I see there's several fiddle video tutorials for "Humours of Ennistymon" to choose from on YouTube & sheet music, too. 

Pretty sure "Humour" means mood, vibe or essence of something or someone.

THANKS!

yes the track has another tune played after it.. youll almost never hear a tune played by itself.  the tricky part with the pro recordings is..IS...the track name talking about 1st, 2nd, or 3rd..etc tune if you dont know any of them?  theres another group i like which is more of a string quartet that gives their set list for a track a unique name  like Bill  ..so for example track #2 on album xyz would be named Bill and be composed of tunes A, B and C played as a back to back set.

humours in Humours of Ennistymon...

I thought it meant vibe.but..did you look at any of the travel photos in the first link?  nice place.  now i think the good vibe is because of the streams and ponds..which in itself could be part of the name if i understand it...none of this means anything other than blab btw in case you havent figured that out..i just liked the tune and wanted to share..

havent tried monaghan yet.

@GregW -

Really like both tunes - cool to pair a 3 & 4-part Jig together that really works!

Yes, the photos were defining. 

Think I know this particular feeling (mood, vibe, etc.), well.  Throughout my life I've repeatedly paid homage to "special" places, especially here in Michigan - nature trails and micro-climate glens that lead to waterfalls or other water features. 

But in general, don't we usually try to seek out the "humours" of a place when we travel or go sight-seeing? 

Maybe we even contemplate the "humours" of objects in a Museum?

...btw, didn't realize Bobby Casey's Hornpipe is aka, "Humours of Tullycrine"!  LOVE "The Humors of Scariff Reel" - Martin Hayes tutorial!
