Jigs: Bryan O'Lynn / The Hag With the Money
[trad. arr. Steeleye Span]
These are two jigs from Steeleye Span's second album Please to See the King. Ashley Hutchings does his best to do the rhythm section with his bass alone but they sound somewhat incomplete without drums. The soaring violin of Peter Knight, though, confirms Tim Harts comment: “He wasn't just a fiddle player: he was a trained musician.”
This video shows Steeleye Span in John Pearse's ATV programme “Music Room” in 1970:
A live recording of these jigs from The Forum, London on 2 September 1995 was released on the 2 CD set The Journey.
