BILL THE WEAVER'S JIG [2]. AKA and see "Thousand Farewells (A)." Irish, Jig (6/8 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'B. Named for Sliabh Luachra concert flute and tin whistle player Bill Murphy (father of fiddlers Denis Murphy and Julia Clifford), called "Bill the Weaver" because his mother and father were both weavers. However, the jig is originally a Seán Ryan composition called "A Thousand Farewells." A variant of the jig is "Rowe's Jig" (AKA "Brendan Tone Rowe's").
