EXILE'S JIG. AKA and see "Emigrant's Jig (The)," "New Widow Well Married (1) (The)," "Port an Deoraí." Irish, Slip Jig or Jig (12/8 time {'A' part} and 9/8 time {'B' part}). E Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Not the "Exile's Lament" in Ryan's Mammoth/Cole's 1000. The composition has been attributed to bouzouki player Johnny Moynahan, recorded with his group Sweeney's Men, but the slip jig predates him and appears as "New Widow Well Married (1) (The)" in Frank Roche's Collection of Traditional Irish Music, vol. 2 (1912).
