The Red Stockings

Written by Cal Scott and featured on ‘Across the Black River’ by himself and Kevin Burke.

There is another slip jig known by the same name and, though multiple tunes coming under one name isn’t unheard of, it seems odd for two tunes of the same type to share one - especially with this tune presumably having been written when the other was already fairly well established! Anyway, it’s a lovely tune with a nice shape about it. I’ve included the final E that can take you back for a repetition of the full tune.
