Another slip jig that doesn’t just sound like someone needed three extra notes in a normal jig.
And it is indeed a mirthful and jolly little jig.
I found this in Chris Green’s “The Musick Meeting”, of which I have the bagpipe edition. To avoid any accidents I safely moved it tone away from any bagpipe-friendly keys (though into the natural ambit of the trumpet). The tune is so close to being “hornpipe by numbers” that I had to stop recording on a number of occasions when I found I’d switched to playing a different tune partway through.
By the way, do you want an opportunity to play these tunes and others like them? The first Odds Bodkins English Session is a week from today, in the Virgins and Castle at Kenilworth. Tina and I from Morris Oxford will be happy to welcome you, your tunes, and your songs (traditional or popular, with an emphasis on the English repertoire) from 8pm.

Among other places this has popped up, it’s one of the dances in Michael Praetorius’ Terpsichore.
