All The Rage

A nice Jig in E major by Larry Unger.
Notation and chords from the Portland Collection.
The Fiddler’s Companion (http://www.ibiblio.org/fiddlers/ALL_AMU.htm) has the entry:
[after playing a dance in Madison, Wisconsin, with Seattle fiddler Ruthie Dornfeld, who kept selecting tunes in E Major for dances (a rather unusual key for most dance music), Unger questioned her and was told that E Major jigs “were all the rage.”]

E major jigs

a really nice tune - it has a few phrases reminiscent of Calliope House, maybe they just fall naturally under the fingers on a fiddle or mandolin in Emaj. If the tune catches on it’ll probably get shifted, like Calliope, to D for the benefit of pipers and whistlers……………..
