Syncopated Jig

Syncopated Jig

Can anyone name a jig composed by a British accordion player that has a syncopated B part? I came across it years ago but have forgotten its name. Thanks.

Re: Syncopated Jig

There will be many, I’m sure. Syncopation is all the rage these days :-(

Some more info might help us. Do you think it’s Scottish, English, or Irish(Tune if not the composer)?
Is there a possibility of you providing ABC fragments if you remember "how it goes"?
Do you remember where and when you came across it?

Re: Syncopated Jig

I think he was from East Anglia. It was a black and white film. I think ! I’ll try and work out the abc.

Re: Syncopated Jig

Are you referring to Oscar Woods Jig? It’s the first track on "English Country Music from East Anglia," and it has a syncopation at the start of the B part.

Re: Syncopated Jig

Oscar Woods plays it in C, by the way, not G as it shows in the link Jeff posted.

Re: Syncopated Jig

That’s the one. Thanks everyone. Jeff’s link in particular nailed it, showing the b part with the third and fourth quavers tied as well as the 6th tied to the following 1st. Without this, of course, it doesn’t sound syncopated!
