Bedubya How fast is a jig? (19) RE: How fast is a jig? 20 Apr 01


You may legally play a jig or a reel as fast as you wish. The only type of fiddle tune which is regulated by a governmnent agency is the hornpipe, which is subject to the speed limits imposed by the Hornpipe Police. The Hornpipe Police are usually present at all sessions with more then five players and at all festivals. However, please note that certain fiddlers and button-accordian players of international renown seem to regularly ignore the posted speed limits with no apparent ill consequences. You may rest assured that a higher authority will correct this oversight when the time comes.
