Jigs

Text: 

N/A
A medley of three jigs: The Swallow's Tail, Morrison's Jig, and The Irish Washerwoman. The fiddle part is split between the two soprano voices. The vocal style is known as "diddling" or "lilting" and was developed during a time when Irish music and culture were outlawed by the British, and so, without fiddles or bagpipes to dance to, revelers would sing the instrumental parts.
