A new jig - well I think I have just composed it today - otherwise it’s my semiconscious remembering of a tune the name and prior existence of which is lost to me. Please let me know if anybody has already heard it (and I will creep under a stone 🙂 ), Either way hope you enjoy it.
249 to Wigton
Just found this today. However it came to you , it sounds like a good tune, especially if you play with a slow, lonesome, lilt.
Reminds me of a piece I heard some time ago, although I cannot remember what it was.
Really enjoyed this, thanks 🙂
Re: 249 To Wigton
Just got introduced to this tune while playing for a Scottish country dance at a Burns Night supper in Kazakhstan. It was called simply “To Wigton” in the sheet music for the sets, but it’s this tune no doubt. No one quite knows how it got in the set among the old warhorse jigs, but at least now I have a clue to its origin. Cracker tune, especially as a change up in a dance set.
