Thread Name: What is a Slip Jig?
Subject: RE: What is a Slip Jig?
Plenty of 9/8s in English folk dance - "Sir Roger de Coverley" etc, and a few in Morris - "Beaux of London"/"Shooting", "Bean Setting". They seem to be older than the 6/8 and 4/4 Morris tunes, and the dances are more ritualistic and less "showy".

Wassail! V
