What are folks favourite hop jigs?
I remember old discussions but recently
For many years I couldn’t hear the difference between hop jogs and slip jigs. Now I can but it takes trying to play one after the other to sort them out. Both are 9/8 but have different phrasing and some can work as both.
My favourite is the Tommy Potts one sometimes called The Loom.
Others I’m playing lately….
The Surround ……
I heard a great one called
“There’s a Man Here on Crutches” recently….
Coleman’s Foxhunters and Comb your Hair and Curl it……
Patsy Touhey’s Rocky Road to Dublin ….
One of Ennis’ the Dusty Miller
