Morrison’s, a spritely jig in E dorian, is a well-known standard at Celtic sessions everywhere. Typical of trad tunes, it goes by other names as well, including Pipe on the Hob, Maurice Carmondy’s Favourite, Stick Across The Hob, and Tom Carmondy’s Favorite.

You can also get a midi version of this tune and other Celtic melodies over at Chubby Sparrow. Alternate versions of this melody, and more information on the tune, can be found at, a great source of trad tunes.
