Tune of the Day: Last Night's Fun
Traditional Irish slip jig
This Mixolydian-mode Irish tune can be found in old manuscripts under various different names, such as “Paddy be easy”, “Miss Brown's Fancy”, and “Whish, Cat from under the Table”. It is a slip jig, or 9/8-time jig. The slip jig is also one the four most common Irish stepdances, the others being the reel, the jig and the hornpipe.
