I am surprised nobody has posted a link to this. Second jig in, Andrew and Eileen on great form as usual.

Mary's body language while the others are playing is telling, I think, suggesting she doesn't like the tune very much. :P

Saw the Boruma trio in the last two weeks, very enjoyable in the bleak days of late Februari. They didn't play this one though.

Not sure about that - she appears to be like that from the beginning. Perhaps she doesn't like The Cook in the Kitchen either. :)

I see he plays the b part an octave higher than how I typically hear it. Is that commonly done with this tune?

He doesn't really go for the full octave. He only deviates from the regular for two bars: instead of going Bd |~g3 dBd | gfg bag | he does something like ga |(b3 b)ga| bga bag | and then returns to the regular programme. A local version, probably, I don't have a precedent for you but Donegal music is at the outer reaches of what I know about.

Last call to listen to the "Irish Washerwoman" recordings in the "Dropbox" folder I created earlier. I'll be deleting them to free up space tomorrow morning.
