BILL COLLINS. AKA and see "Collins' Jig," "Dan Collins' Father's Jig." Irish, Double Jig (6/8 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Irish musician Bill Collins came from Gort, County Galway, not far from Kinvara. He is the father of Shanachie records' Dan Collins. The tune is sometimes mistakenly called "The Hearty Boys of Ballymoate/Ballymote," the name of another tune, after it was recorded by the group De Dannan in a set called "The Hearty Boys..."; "Bill Collins" was the untitled follow-up tune. See also "Johnny Dennehy's."
