Lame Crowley

Story

I knew that Billy McComiskey, Laura Byrne, and Donna Long, with their superlative musicianship, would be the right people to play this tune. I learned it many years ago from my long-time friend Mr. Larry Gavin. Billy was curious as to where the jig had come from, while saying in a few words that it sounded to him like a beautiful old melody. Glad you like it as much as I do, Billy.
