WHEN DAYLIGHT SHINES. AKA and see "Carnival of Venice," "Carnival of Venices," "Three Meet (1)," "Uncle Jim’s Jig.” English, Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The alternate title "Three Meet" is the name of a dance to the tune "When Daylight Shines." A tune called "The Swedish Dance," a truncated version of "When Daylight Shines," was collected by English dance and music collector Cecil Sharp in 1909 from Thomas Swallow of Lower Guiting, Gloucestershire. The dance as well is a version of "Three Meet"; it was common in the area to refer to dances as 'Swedish' if the dancers were in groups of three, alternating men and women. Melodeon player Bob Cann (Dartmour, Devon), learned a version of the tune from one of his uncles and, not having a name, called it "Uncle Jim’s" (Barn Dance).
