The Strutting Jig

Called a "hornpipe" in modern Highland piping, but more akin to a reel. I wasn’t sure which category to put this tune in, as it’s a relatively new genre developed in the Highland piping world. This genre has become one of the major vehicles for new compositions over the last quarter-century.

Written by Dave Rickard of the Fintan Lalor Pipe Band, Dublin. I don’t know why it’s called a jig in the title.

Mr Rickard has done much work over the years adapting traditional Irish tunes to the big pipes.
