A Little Jig

by M.C. Handel

Penny whistle, hand drum, acoustic guitars, tambourine, celli, solo violin, and solo viola make this little jig feel like an olde Celtic classic! It's fun to listen to and fun to perform. It would be ideal for St. Patrick's Day or anytime at all.

The recorder part we used on the full performance on the CD is Version 2, which is a more advanced part. After we had recorded it, we decided to also include a simpler part (Version 1) so that younger or less advanced students could also play the piece. There is no recording of this version, but the instrumental tracks work with either one.
