The Devil’s Chimney

A hop jig by Michael Rooney on the new album from his project with June McCormack, Draoicht. I love the way the rhythm shifts a bit in the third part!

I entered it as a slip jig in keeping with the general practice on the site, but as a hop jig it’s played much straighter like a fast 3/4, with forward-led snappy triplets as in the ABC below.
