    This is a jig from Shetland, arranged for three melody instruments and guitar by Evelyn Tiffany-Castilglioni (Thanks, Evelyn!). I thought we had this one as an SAW a while ago, but apparently not.

    All instruments performed by me:

    Gibson Ajr mandolin
    Zimmermann waldzither
    Mid-Missouri M-0W mandolin
    Ozark tenor guitar
    Suzuki MC-815 mandocello

    Very nice Martin. Put me in a right nice mood.
    I got out my black hat and eye patch and ran up my 'true' colors.
    Left me hook in the drawer. That ended badly last time.

    Excellent, Martin. Is the arrangement for this (and the Swallowtail) available anywhere?

    Thanks for the nice words!

    Maudlin: both these arrangements are from the repertoire folder of Evelyn's contra dance band and I got them from her privately along with her two original waltzes that I recorded this month, "La Vie" and "Concurso" (posted here). I suggest you send a PM to Evelyn ("harper") if you're interested in any of these arrangements.

    Martin, thanks very much for posting this tune with your lovely selection of images. I really like the depth your new mandocello gives to the bass line. If anyone would like the scores to any of my arrangements that Martin has posted, just pm me.

    Happy St. Pat's tomorrow!

    Thanks to Evelyn for sending me her arrangement and here it is on three mandolins and a guitar.

    I thought, we’ve got the flags, why not the rigging and the ship too.

    Very nice playing, Simon -- we play that jig all the time with our group, as it's just so much fun!

    Note that this tune was our "official" tune for Week #373 and I have recently posted a new recording to that thread:
