Morrison’s Jig

Here's a very popular tune.  It's always a good standard one to learn but doesn't get recorded all that often.  It's worth digging out a recording of James Morrison playing it to show that it really does have a life.

I've played it slow at first and then quickened up a little.

There's nothing wrong with common tunes.  There probably only so common because people like them.

    Just found your website due to a posting and several gushing comments about it at the woodenflute listserv. This is a great version of Morrison’s, Michael! Our band plays this, but not this way. I like yours much better and will absorb some of that into my playing. Thanks!

    I believe The Stick over the Hob may have been Tom Carmody’s name for it He was the Kerry accordian player who played in the band for years with Jimmy Morrison who made such a great job of it andand brought it to public notice by his 78 records- the rest is history as they say. Wondefrul job on the tunes Keep it up. Maith thú a Mhicheáil Marcas
