TRIP TO DENMARK [1] (Taith i Ddenmarc). Welsh, Jig (6/ 8 time). AKA and see "Molony's Jig," "Miss Dawson's Whim, "Owen Malone." G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The two-part melody was first published in Glasgow by James Aird under the title "Miss Dawson's Whim." Later, it was published in Irish violinist R.M. Levely's 2nd collection (1873) as "Molony's Jig", and Francis O'Neill printed it as "Owen Malone"; 'Malone' and 'Molony' are so close as to strongly suggest one title was a mishearing of the other. The first strain is shared with with the earlier English "Shepherd's Jigg" and "Trip to Ankerwick," although the second strains differ.
