As a Morris, ceilidh and contra dance musician, I play lots of jigs, but I'm like an addict - I always crave more. And what better place to search for great new jigs than here in TOTM land?
Let’s hear your favorite jigs: old ones, new ones, traditional or not traditional, easy or challenging, 32 bar or 48 or whatever. Maybe even a jig you wrote.
English and Irish jigs abound, and don’t be shy about recording and posting old favorites.
But I’m also hoping we’ll get some great tunes from other parts of the world and some quirky tunes.
Let’s not quibble about terminology. Is it a jig or a slide? What about slip jigs? Well, if it’s a good tune, who cares? If it seems like a jig, has jig in the name, makes you want to dance a jig, it’s fair game. (Yes, I know, there are tunes that have ‘jig’ in the name that are distinctly not jigs, Chorus Jig being a notable example.)
