Summary

Summary

Another entry of 200 tunes in the Fiddler's Tune-Book series, this book comes in response to the re-discovery of the much neglected triple-time jig and waltz rhythms once widely used for all kinds of traditional dancing in Britain and Ireland. Before the end of the nineteenth century this triple rhythm was used for long sets, contra dances and square sets. Both jigs and waltzes were used for these community formation dances, but of course, the waltz itself swept the fashionable ballrooms as a 'round dance' for individual couples. Mally's and UK product #AR105.
