THE JACOBSTOWE JIG
Friday, April 18, 2014
This is a Jig with a difference. It refers to a job I had several years ago playing piano in a pub in Exbourne. A number of farmers from the neibouring village of Jacobstowe (2 miles away) used to walk to Exbourne, drink lots of the local cider and then attempt the walk home. Their walks would often be like a jig dance hence the tempo changes, key changes and the odd dissonant unexpected clips.
These eight farmers were always cheerful and loud in conversation and the nightly walk when completely drunk was part of the ritual.
Jacobstowe lies just 5 miles north of Okehampton and Dartmoor and is in the heart of north west Devon.
I hope you all enjoy this one.
Thanking you all in advance of the comments.
Cheers and love to you all.
