PIPING JIG. AKA and see "MacLeod of Mull." Irish, Jig. Ireland, County Donegal. B Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABCCD. Listed here as 'Irish' as it was transcribed as an untitled pipe jig from the playing of Dungloe, Donegal, fiddler Danny O'Donnell (1910-2001). However, the tune is a 20th century composition of Scottish Pipe Major Donald MacLeod entitled "MacLeod of Mull," a 6/8 pipe march. O'Donnell recorded sides for Regal Zonophone in May, 1939, in London, and again in Dublin in May, 1945, and broadcast regularly on radio programmes. He also had one LP ("The Donegal Fiddler") issued in the 1970's. O'Donnell lived at times in England, Scotland, and the east coast United States, but returned to live in Ballybofey, Donegal, before finally returning to his native Dungloe.
