Liam's Jig -
For our grandson, Liam
(c)2006 Suzanne Mead
This tune had been kicking around a bit, unnamed, as many new tunes are until
they tell me their name. I was visiting our daughter and son-in-law in Maryland when Liam
was born. Jim drove down the next day and we spent several days enjoying our new
grandson. Jim had brought my fiddle and his guitar with him so we could practice
for a dance we'd be playing for the day after we got back. I began playing
this tune out of habit, and it claimed its name, then and there - Liam's Jig.
It's a strong, happy tune, like the little guy. It's become a jam session and dance favorite. Cool note: A friend took the tune to Australia, where is it played for dances there.
