It is an odd St. Patrick’s Day this year, and we hope you’re all safe and healthy. There are still plenty of ways to celebrate the day, and hearing a great set of jigs will definitely get you in the mood. 

While Flynn Cohen was in the studio recording new lessons for his Irish Backup Guitar course, Peghead Nation Irish Mandolin instructor Marla Fibish stopped by to play melody on some of Flynn’s lessons, and they played a few sets of tunes to warm up. In this video, Marla and Flynn play the Irish jigs “Winnie Hayes” and “Anthony Fawley’s.”

Flynn will be doing a Facebook Live Irish guitar workshop on St. Patrick’s Day, in which he’ll be talking about playing the jig rhythm and fielding questions from his Irish Backup Guitar students and other Facebook visitors. 

Be sure to check out Marla’s beautiful new album, The Bright Hollow Fog, and sign up for Irish Mandolin with Marla Fibish now
