X:1 T:Slip Jig [5] (untitled) O:Shetland M:9/8 L:1/8 B:Old-Lore Miscellany, vol. V (1912, p. 81) N:The tune is from a manuscript collection [given A.W. Johnston] by N:"the late" Mrs. Balfour, which had been in the possession of her N:husband, the late Colonel David Balfour of Balfour and Trenaby. N:The Ms. also contains "Day Dawn" and "Foula Reel"..." N:Cecil Sharp thought the 2nd strain was reminiscent of the corresponding N:strain of "Rakes of Mallow" (AKA "Sandy's lent the man his mill"), N:allowing for the change in time.
