Jigs from the Vault

Oh, dear, it took me all week to put up Part Four of The Gold Ring, but here it is, just in time to learn Part Five tonight!

Its Vault night, when we excavate long buried tunes under cover of darkness and fuelled by biscuits and tea. This week we are excavating a few jigs; yes, a whole night of the time signature that swings along to syllables that sound like "pineapple underpants".

We will revise Behind the Haystack (also known as Munster Buttermilk, though another jig shares that name), and probably Kalyama unless there is a request for another jig.

See you there!
