SLIP GIGUE ALARIE. French-Canadian, Clog (cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. "Slip gigue alarie" is not a slip jig in the Irish sense, but rather is a type of clog dance. Montreal accordionist and composer Alfred Montmarquette (1871-1944) employs melodic material from American songwriter Stephen Foster's "Swannee River" as the basis for his piece.
