Lost and Found
Back to Lost and Found
LOST AND FOUND, THE. AKA and see "Coleman's Maid on the Green," "James O'Byrne's," "Maid on the Green (The)," "Manning's Jig," "Michael Coleman's," "Monasteraden Jig," "Tommy Peoples'." Irish, Jig. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. This untitled jig acquired the name "The Lost and Found" when it resurfaced in a collection of recordings made by south County Sligo fiddler Michael Coleman (1895-1945), in New York, a year before his death. It was recorded as "Lost and Found" on fiddler James Kelly's "Traditional Irish Music" (1996). However, it is not that rare of a tune, and has several titles. It was recorded in the 78 RPM era as "Manning's Jig" by accordion player Peter J. Conlon, and as "Tommy Peoples'" by the Boys in the Lough. The second strain is shared with that of "Castlebar Races."
