The Kesh Jig

Here's another Irish jig I picked up from Bucky Reed's excellent site.It's also known as The Castle, Kerrigan’s, The Kesh Mountain, The Kincora, The Mountaineers’ March, among others. Michael Coleman recorded the melody on 78 RPM as “Kerrigan’s Jig.” The first printed version appears to be in George Petrie’s 1850’s collection under the title “Tear the Callies.”

The animation in this video is the work of the incredibly talented Ryan Woodward.
