BOBBY CASEY'S JIG . AKA - "Casey's Jig (1)." AKA and see "Scully Casey's Jig (3)." Irish, Jig (6/8 time). A Mixolydian (Feldman & O'Doherty). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Bobby Casey (1926-2000) was a renowned fiddler from West Clare; Scully was his father. A version is published as an untitled double jig published by Breathnach (CRE, vol. 3, 1985; No. 16, p. 9), from the playing of fiddler Kevin Burke and accordion player Jackie Daly.
Irish guitarist Paul de Grae relates the story of the north London pub called 'The Case is Altered' (actually there were several pubs with that name), a name that stems from a centuries old expression meaning "things are different now." Another story exists for the oldest of the 'Case Altered' pubs, that had supposedly been established by a veteran from Wellington's army during the Napoleonic Wars who had been invalided out. The soldier had been wounded during the Spanish campaign and had been hospitalized in a commandeered villa called La Casa Alta, a name transformed and brought home. Bobby Casey liked to go to the pub on a Sunday, says Paul, leading some to playfully refer to it as "Casey's Altar!"
