Magpie in the Tree
And now to confuse things even more or, as they say at home in Ireland, 'to throw more turf on the fire', my brother Martin Connolly here plays 'Magpie in the Tree', which is yet another version of the classic jig 'Bryan O'Lynn'. Martin, a great accordion player and the maker of the 'Kincora' accordion, told me that the County Kerry fiddle player Johnny Cronin played this jig for him over the phone. Johnny was in New York and Martin was in John's sister's house near Killarney.
