Mordaunt's Fancy


This jig was played in my home in Killaloe, County Clare, when I was a young boy. It was not played by me, but by button accordionist Terry Lane on the turntable of our record player! Now, whenever I hear Mr. Lane's recordings, or 'Mordaunt's Fancy', it brings back childhood memories. My friend Geraldine Cotter from Ennis, County Clare, joins me on piano. We recorded the track in Geraldine's home in front of a blazing turf fire.
