This tune is catchy! 

"Jackie Roche's Favorite" - in D mixolydian!  Performed by Paddy Cronin. 

1st time I've heard the term, "double jig", but makes sense with 6/8 time.  

 

More info!

 This is a great set of 3 Irish jigs! 

Hadn't heard the last 2 before, either - so they're all basically new to me. 

"Jackie Roche's, Dusty Windowsill and Mouse in a Mug" played by Traonach. 

 

@Mouse - have you heard of Traonach?

Traonach is a Ceili Band in Ithaca, New York!

Lived not far from there many years ago, in a big old farmhouse that had mice in the walls. 

Besides great music, this band's location and "Mouse in a Mug" bring back fond memories for me. (lol)

Hadnt heard that one Emily but its a great tune looked it up last night, it goes under a few different names.

When you mention the new york irish band it reminded me of last year, we went on a cheap holiday to jerez in Spain were they have Andalusian horse shows, and when we arrived there were street festivals going on with music on differe t stages, any way there was an amazing band on there playing loads of jigs and reels, at the end he introduced the band and they were all spanish, I couldnt believe it I was waiting for the southern Irish accents, shows how popular This type of music is, wherever its played people cant help enjoiyng it.

@stringy -

I'm still very excited about this jig, actually the whole set - so making it a priority after some of the Parties.  

You must be very proud, coming from a musical culture that is held in such high esteem that it's traditional tunes are kept intact, cherished and renown the World over! 

Irish music has always been easy to find in the USA, but my eyes were opened when I found out one of my favorite Irish bands (found on YouTube), "Orthodox Celts", is from... Serbia!  Since then, I've fallen in love with Irish/Celtic bands in many Countries. 

Nice to know that Trad Irish music is in Jerez, also!   Jerez is almost the opposite side of Spain, where Celtic music/culture in the area around Galicia is very prevalent.

Btw, I've owned/trained a couple of beautiful Thoroughbreds - and even though I've preferred to ride horses over 16 hands in height (since a small child), the elegance of an Andalusian has been a life-long dream!

Emily, I believe music belongs to everybody, doesnt matter were it originated. I love southern usa music, music belongs to everyone.

My missus has a horse called jack, she has had horses all her life,  in fact she has been there all day today while they change stables.

I personally think all scots, and Irish music as well as a fair amount of English comes from morroco, if you listen to their music you can hear celtic rythms.

By the way most people in Liverpool and nearby are of Irish descent, my great grandma used to sit in her rocking chair drinking from a bottle of whiskey and cursing the English, when The orange lodge parade passed by each year, down Scotland road.

Absolutely true and quite funny when I think about it now.

🤔 Interesting! 

Music IS for everyone.🤗

...and this World would be a very boring place if it was all the same.🙄 I'm grateful there are people dedicated to preserving original styles - even if I'm not faithful doing it myself.🤭

Love the stories about music 🥰 especially about the fiddle (or anything remotely similar) and consider it an adventure to learn why/how and where all this music is different! 

Just Being Contented Smiley
