dust off those Cds

It's amazing what you find if you do alittle light housekeeping, especially while organizing that LP and CD collection. I came across an Ossian recording, "Totally Traditional Tin Whistles" featuring an array of accomplished musicians playing the heck out of this modest little instrument. I started listening to track 16 which features Fintan Vallely playing two double jigs, Sixpenny Money and Paidin O' Raftery. Ossian released this recording but I don't have the slightest idea when they did it. So here is the jig, Sixpenny Money, played slightly slower than the recording for your learning pleasure. It is a lovely whistle tune, even for those who are reluctant to smile at you when you walk into a session armored with a whistle.

Here is the manuscript:

Sixpenny Money
