A Manx tune (I gather it’s a traditional one) that I learned from a friend and which quickly became one of my favourite jigs. I’ve recently started playing it as the first in a set with the Coleraine and the Bishop of Bangor’s Jig (two of my other favourites).

Re: Flitter

Incidentally, the title should be "Flitter Jig", not just "Flitter" but the second word seems to have been automatically stripped out when I posted the tune.

Re: Flitter

I spotted those earlier but I didn’t look carefully at them since they weren’t jigs, so I didn’t realise they were essentially settings of the same tune.
