The “(3s” are innacurate and should be left out of the ABC, John. Good tune, though - thanks.


The name means, “Having Beautiful Buttocks…”

I did Ancient Greek, I know these things!

better played slow, waltz-like…


One of my favorite jigs which I wrote for an early bohola recording…


I’ll post a correct version of my tune soon as the one that appears here is slightly off…

Re: Callipygian

Jimmy, I’ve updated the ABC above, 16 years later 😉 It still may not be 100% exactly the same as you wrote it, but it is definitely closer. My ears have gotten a litter better. Such a beautiful tune. One of my favorite jigs!
