A fine Irish jig! It's a short recording since it's on our 2-CD set "52; Traditional Fiddle Tunes from Fiddle Hell: Played Fast and Slow (Vol. 2)" and we had to put 52 recordings on each CD. I'm on fiddle, with my son Eric on piano and my wife Cindy on bodhran. Recorded in 2017. CDs are available here as well as info about Fiddle Hell Massachusetts.

Nice...Touch of the Rodney Miller About it..
This is how jigs sound when i play em with my bluegrass pals (not quite as good tone etc as you but i'll get there one day)
In Irish sessions they seem to go a bit straighter 6/8 time (Diddley Diddley, rather than Dumpy dumpy):o), i suppose that's due to the DADGAD guitar backing at the sessions... i love em both ways...nice job altogether
cheers pete

Thanks, @pete_fiddle ! Rodney's a great player with cool variations. Not sure the timing depends on the backup - there's a bit of a slide feel to this tune that perhaps makes it sound swingier and a little less straight.
