Jim taught the technique class ...

Jim taught the technique class for four years and this dance and tune were presented to him on leaving the class. Celtic reels were included to prove that we could all do them. Although, I don·t think he believes us yet. (Fiona Mackie)
Jim was the first teacher I played for in the Branch and he taught me a lot. for which I am grateful. By the way still looking for Book 3002! (Luke Brady)
