Grit’s Jig

Recorded 11 Feb 2015 with Ellen Gibling
Written by Graham Lindsey

This is the first tune of mine that I’d played in public – now named for Grit Laskin, maker of fine stringed instruments, and without which I wouldn’t have written any tunes at all. Thanks, Grit!

Harp accompaniment by Ellen Gibling, a harpist working in Halifax.
