Marg's Jig


Maeve Donnelly plays a composition of master composer Mrs. Matilda Murdoch, the queen of New Brunswick fiddle playing. Matilda has numerous compositions to her credit and she takes great pleasure in passing the tunes along to musicians eager to learn them. Matilda was delighted to hear the musical confluence that resulted when Maeve played this New Brunswick tune in her wonderful Irish fiddle style.
