So far I know, Liz Carroll wrote this wonderful tune for the “childsplay” project of fiddle-maker Bob Childs.

I found this wonderful recording of Liam Childs Slip Jig on YouTube.

The leading line on this page says there are ‘2 recordings of a tune by this name’ but the link shows 2 tunes with different names. I am not sure how this works as I am a newcomer to The Sessions. I am not sure if they are the same tune or not yet. Meanwhile I’ll just enjoy the tune. I really enjoy slip jigs anyway.

You can also find a lovely recording by Jake Charron and Shane Cook of this
on their “Head to Head” CD.. track 2.

Re: Liam Childs

How do I go about playing this? Is it public domain or copyright? I love it!

Re: Liam Childs

It’ll be copyrighted, Roy, but that doesn’t stop you playing it. Since it’s already been recorded you don’t need permission to record it but you’d need to pay copyright before publishing.

This is a setting of the tune that I play, I know it was originally written in G however on the button accordion I always thought C was a nicer key for it.
