Sally Lennon's Jig

Fiddle player Ben Lennon from Kiltyclogher in North Leitrim composed this tune for his mother Sally (Nee Griskin) Lennon.  Ben plays jig's in a particular fashion, which is a tight, hoppy rhythm, championed by the North Connacht greats such as Coleman and Kiloran, it's a style that you don't hear too often these days.  Irene Guckian and I recorded this tune on our album Drumshanbows (2014).  Irene suggested that it would go well after Ben Lennon's Bowhand.  Ben himself recorded it on the album with Fr. Seamus Quinn, Gabriel McArdle and Ciaran Curran called Dog Big, Dog Little.
