Video – Aberdeen Jig

Original Folk Music!

Pete McCauley and I recently formed an Irish/American Folk and Roots duo called Mac and Cheese. It’s really been a lot of fun playing those old timeless tunes and songs. Pete’s a great player and songwriter, and a real pleasure to work with. This is one of the tunes he wrote several years ago while playing with The Hounds of Finn. The Aberdeen Jig, like the name implies, is written in a jig style. Jigs are traditionally defined as lively dance tunes in a compound meter (6/8). He wrote it in Aberdeen, South Dakota at the NorthEast South Dakota Celtic Faire and Games. Enjoy this little video we’ve put together for you!
