JOHN NAUGHTON'S (JIG). Irish, Jig. Ireland, County Clare. G Dorian. A version of O'Neill's "Old Man Dillon," while the first strain appears to be a variant of "Darby the Driver." John Naughton is an elderly, well-regarded concertina player from Feakle, County Clare. Having learned the instrument in his youth he stopped playing for many decades and only with some prompting returned to the instrument to revive the tunes that he remembered. Quite a few are interesting variants of 'standard' versions of tunes.
