Cavehill - traditional Irish jig

    I searched high and low and did not see this one amongst the vast list of awesome tunes. So I hope you all enjoy it! I love the melody. I love the layers. This traditional Irish jig was so fun to learn.

    Fine playing, Jason, and an interesting use of the harmony parts in your version.

    I really enjoyed this Jason. I know you worked hard on this and the layers are audible and clear especially with headphones. Nice work.

    Hey, Lawrence I thought this tune was really well known, years ago someone told me it was written in Scotland about some place over there but then became popular around Belfast because of the same place name.
    -Though Iím probably miss-remembering the story.

    What a sweet mediterranean ambience this arrangement creates, I can see it all in my head - palm trees, blue sea, white boats, olive oil...
    Wait - Irish?

    Ha, ha True, I heard it down here, but it was played by an Irish fiddler...

    Simon, you mention hearing Cavehill identified as a Scottish jig. I am not sure about that but we have a great Scottish 4-part pipe jig called Cork Hill that is popular in sessions. Here is a link to one of our finest pipers, Pipe Major Stuart Liddell of the World Champions Inveraray and District Pipe Band, teaching the tune on YT. It is a long video but you get the tune played at a slow speed at the start and Stuart has a lot of great ideas about learning and memorising a tune which can be applied to our mandolins as well as to the bagpipes:
