The Blarney Pilgrim

The Blarney Pilgrim sheet music. This jig isa popular tune at Irish sessions. It seems to be especially popular under fiddle players, but is equally nice to play on tin whistle or any other instrument. The title of this jig is referring to The Blarney stone, a block of limestone built into the walls of Blarney Castle, located close to Cork, Ireland. The legend goes that kissing the stone endows the kisser with the gift of the gab, meaning giving the ability to speak freely and in a way people want to listen to you and believe you. The stone attracts people from all over the world.

In the the PDF file below you can find the sheet music for the Blarney Pilgrim. I have written down the notes and the basic chords of the tune which will do well for any Irish session. The tune can be pimped up easily by making some nice variations on the chords or adding some double notes, especially in the third part of the tune.
