Jim Ward's (jig)Right, here's my go at Jim Ward's jig ... slow and with a few chords thrown into the mix.
AKA Jimmy Ward's / Ward's Favourite / The Clare Jig, the tune was composed by banjo player, flautist and lilter Jimmy Ward (1909-1987) from Co. Clare, who played with the renowned Kilfenora Céilí Band.
Here's the man himself lilting the tune during the 1967 Fleadh Cheoil in Kilrush.
And finally, here's a nice version (with Sliabh Russell) on flute by Ballaghadereen-native Matt Molloy of The Chieftains fame.
