LILTING FISHERMAN, THE. AKA and see "Bit of Ginger," "Fisherman (1) (The)," "Fisherman's Lilt (2)," "Joe Derrane's Jig (1)." Irish, Double Jig (6/8 time). G Major ('A' part) & D Major ('B' part). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB (Mallinson, McNulty): AA'BB' (Tubridy). Perhaps composed by Paddy Killoran (see Annotation:Joe Derrane's Jig (1)), although researcher Jean Duval believes the Irish jig to have derived from French quadrille music. Per his comment below, the following quadrille part from an older French quadrille is similar, though more melodically intricate.

T:Les visites (4e partie de quadrille) 
B:From 1974. Pierre Conté. Danses anciennes de cour et de théâtre en France.
