Requires a 2 part slip jig, like Boys of Ballisodare or Drops of Brandy.
Written for Russell Owen on the occasion of his 40th birthday.
Forward and back can be challenging in slip jig time, as some dancers may take 4 steps and wrench their neighbors. I suggest teaching this as two steps forward and bring feet together, etc.
This dance is from American Country Dances On Line
