Description

The Irish jig is very fashionable within the traditions of Irish dance music and none more so than this particular favourite, The Irish Washerwoman. There are various forms of jig including the 'single jig', 'slip jig' and 'slide jig'. Written in 6/8 time, this skilful setting by Rodney Newton breathes new life into the popular tune and is a perfect example of the 'double jig'.

The Irish Washerwoman can be heard on the CD Celtic Charm (DOYCD214) on which the performers are David Childs and Cory Band.
