Plains of Mayo, The

Story

This jig is tune number 304 in [George] Petrie's Complete Irish Music. It is given a special melodic lift by Larry Gavin and Micheál O'Rourke on accordion and fiddle. Charlie Lennon adds his own unmistakable accompaniment on piano. They recorded this version of the tune especially for me. The tune may also be heard on their own CD recording Two Miles to Tulla in a set with 'The Galway Jig'.
