What jig is this?
Audio of me playing part of a piece whose name I don't know.

Here is a tune that most folks are probably familiar with.  I'm guessing it's in the repertoire of more than one forum member.  I don't know the name, but can you tell me?  It sounds like a jig to me.  Anyway it seems to go in 6/8 time.

Any remarks (including critiques) you have about my playing of it or anybody's playing of it are very welcome.  Also I am likely to want to hear your favorite recording or see your favorite sheet music for it.

And if you are inclined to put up audio or video of you playing it, that would be great!

The name I know it by is "The Irishman's Shanty".

sounds like Irish washer woman, but not completely. Maybe an other version then the one I know.

It seems to have at least two names, Irish Washerwoman and Irishman's Shanty.

Here are the lyrics to Irishman's Shanty:

cool

I've learned so much from my mistakes that I've decided to make some more.

Thanks, Daniel, Stix, Hateful, and Gail, for your replies, all correct, it seems.

I am putting this on my fiddle to-do list.

Again, if anybody knows of some good sheet music, please post a link here.
