Swallow Tail Set


8. Swallow Tail Set

This is a set of 2 jigs and a reel:

The Swallowtail Jig

Road to Lisdoonvarna

Drowsy Maggie

Jigs and Reels are very popular dance tunes, especially in Ireland and Scotland. They're also a lot of fun to play.

Miss Carrie learned "The Swallowtail Jig" from her long ago violin teacher. "Drowsy Maggie" is a reel that she learned from the leader of her former band, "The Survivors". The second song, "Road to Lisdoonvarna" was one she learned in 2009 from Judy Arter who showed her the full set put together.
