Lovely slip-jig/jig from James Kelly’s "Traditional Irish Music".
Altan and a Gaita
Altan’s version of this with Carlos Nunez on Whistle and Galician Pipes, is amazing. I feel in love with this tune, so I picked it up, really simple too.
I love this tune too, but did any of you kbow that when it is played as a modern set dance, in feisanna, it actually changes from a slip jig into a treble jig, which is just a slow jig.
Is The Big Man Within ?, X:2
I’ve added some of my variations on this fantastic jig, gives it a bit more life.
Re: Is The Big Man Within ?
How was surprised to discover this tune under the title “The Merry Tailor” in O’Neill‘s Music of Ireland.
