WINNIE HAYES'. Irish, Jig (6/8 time). A Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The jig is sometimes played in E dorian. Similar to "Cordal Jig."
Winnie Hayes was a concertina player from County Clare (no relation to Clare musician Kitty Hayes) who was born in 1881 died in 1981 at the age of one-hundred. The tune was popularized by Co. Clare tin whistle player Micho Russell (1915-1994). According to liner notes for the tune in the recording "Micho Russell: Ireland's Whistling Ambassdor", Russell was given the tune by his brother-in-law James McNulty, a flute player from Tullygarvan, near Lahinch. As a young man, McNulty had learned the tune from his concertina-playing neighbor, Winnie Hayes. See also Russell's similar "Yellow Wattle (3)".
