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 jigs including the ‘single jig', ‘slip jig' and ‘slide jig'. However, written in 6/8 metre this skillful setting by Rodney Newton breathes new life into the popular tune and is a perfect example of the ‘double jig'.
