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.

Liam Childs recording

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