Tune of the Day: Da Full Rigged Ship

Traditional Scottish jig

This old traditional Shetland listening tune was once popularized by fiddler Tom Anderson (1910–1991), who explained the little hesitations and sudden melodic turns as “the motion when a fine sailing ship mounts the ocean swell, pauses and dips its bow again”. This jig is traditionally played slowly (down to 60 BPM), with lots of feeling, and is often followed without a break by the fast reel “Da New Rigged Ship”.
