The Halloween Jig

A spooky pirate's jig from the session tunes.

Close your eyes and watch the captured pirates marching to the scaffold. Halloween. I can't wait.

I've got a message from

"The Halloween Jig was composed by my friend Jean Duval - perhaps you could acknowledge this on your page? He named it BTW not because of any spookiness, but because the tune came to him on this day a few years ago. I say "came to him" because he subsequently discovered there was a trad jig with an almost identical first part (this happens!). His second part is nicer than that of the original though."
So the mystery of the author is solved.
