The Cat And The Dog

This is a great slip jig from Benbecula. The first part bears a lot of similarities to Ryan’s Jig. I picked it up from this youtube played by Angus Nicholson and Coll MacDonald, both from here in Skye, on pipes and fiddle, and Will Lamb on bouzouki. It’s the second tune in the set.

Fantastic tune - was taught it by Julie Fowlis a few years ago at a workshop. I will have to dig it out and dust it down again.

This is close to how Julie Fowlis plays it on the Julie Fowlis Live album.

The tune has no Cs in it and the key is difficult to pin down but seems to switch mainly between G major and E minor.
