Conlon's Jig (1)
Back to Conlon's Jig (1)
CONLON'S JIG . Irish, Jig. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'. Named for accordion player P.J. Conlon , originally from Miltown, north Co Galway, one of the first Irish-born musicians to record commercially on the melodeon, whose hey-day was in the 1920's in America. The first strain of the jig is cognate with the first strain of "Pat's Parlour," printed in the 1880's by Glasgow publisher James S. Kerr, with a similar although different second strain.
The first strain is also the one-strain morris jig from Bampton, called "Bonny Green Garters (2)/Green Garters (4)."
