LIGHT AND AIRY  (Eadtrom agus beoda). Irish, Slip Jig (9/8 time). A Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. 'Light and Airy' is often a phrase used for the graceful dance the slip jig, traditionally a girl's or woman's dance. The first strain of the slip jig can be compared to the first strain of Robert Ross's 6/8 time jig (see "Light and Airy (1)." The relationship is obscure, but there is a similarity in the contour and and harmonic structure of the two.
