Matt Hayes' Jig / Paddy Fahy's Jig

New jigs new jigs hooray hooray hooray.  Today I learned one from my favorite new duo Folk Ragoût, which is comprised of my friends Leslie Harrison on flute and Fred Pouille on guitar.  They have a very cool sound and do all kinds of surprising things.  Order their album here!

There's a bit of disagreement about the name of this tune.  Folk Ragoût calls it Matt Hayes' Jig, but it's also attributed to the Galway fiddler Paddy Fahy, who doesn't name any of his tunes.  So... it's either Paddy Fahy's or Matt Hayes' or probably by now, it's both.
