Description

Please note that this is the same piece as ‘Christmas Jig’, as although it is based on a piece of that name, it has ‘all-year-round’ appeal!  This piece fuses two dance styles; the jig in 6/8 time, based here on a piece ‘A Christmas Jig’, and the reel in 4/4, based on the traditional French Canadian folk song; ‘The Mouth of the Tobique’.

The basses have a vital role in creating a Celtic style drone sound, and the percussion a simple but effective Irish rhythm.
A great audience pleaser, and ideal as the encore to round off a concert and leave a lasting memory in the minds of the listeners.
