Rose And Kathleen’s
A musician might be in grave danger offering this "slip jig" to a dancer. Nonetheless, this tune is among a host of really nice ones Liz Carroll wrote to accompany the exhibit "Ireland: Crossroads of Art and Design 1690-1840" at the Art Institute of Chicago (March 17-June 6, 2015).
Crossroads of Art and…..
Are there any other of the Liz Carroll tunes from the Crossroads exhibit here? Thanks so much for the Rose and Kathleen’s!!
There are definitely a bunch more tunes she offered for the exhibition. There’s a planxty she wrote that is played before Rose and Kathleen’s that’s very nice. I’ll post it sometime — stay tuned!

I had transcribed this and I think it’s a little bit of a cleaner version (no offense to anyone of course) and a bit easier to read perhaps - I had it anyway. My friends and I are playing this set from the Irish Crossroads of Art and Design. This is a Liz Carroll tune.
Re: Rose And Kathleen’s
I saw Liz and Marty Fahey, and Aileen Dillane present at Notre Dame and when Liz introduced this set she said it was a tip of the hat to Chicago south side blues. By the time the slip Jig came around her comments slipped my mind so I missed the connection. Later a couple of friends and I decided to play the set and I learned the piano accompaniment and at some point I came to the realization that this is a blues progression and her comments came back. I asked the other two in the group and they had basically the same experience so I felt a little less stupid for having missed it in the first place.
