Paddy Whack, Irish Jig

Taken from The Treasure Chest of Irish Songs (Jigs and Reels), 1943, Treasure Chest Publications.

Jigs are folk dances and the accompanying music. Go here for more information

Reels are folk dances; Irish reels are defined by the time (as in 4/4). It’s much more complicated than that and if you want further information, click here.

Go here for The Bells of Shandon.

Go here for I’ll Take You Home Again, Kathleen.

Go here for Killarney.
