Al, you had mentioned the lack of 9/8 time slip jigs as well as 6/8 jigs. I only have one in my repertoire which was collected in Virginia and printed in 1782 - so here it is!

Very pretty. Might have to try this one.

Very beautifully played Mark.  Is that your 4 string gourd?

By the way, what tuning are you using?

Mark, that was great.  Was it the girls or the plantation that was old?

Rob- lol!  If girls can be old, where does that leave me I wonder?    =8-*

I think I've done listened to this about 15 times now...can't get enough of it ;)

If I can figure it out, it'd be the only 9/8 jig that I'd know.

Strum - its actually a cheap kit banjo strung with nylguts!

I imagine you could make an empty can of ham with a rubber band sound the same as well.   sigh....    ;)
