The "King of the Pipers" is a traditional Irish Jig of unknown origin. Although usually associated with the bagpipes, it is not actually played much at all on the Uilleann pipes (traditional bagpip[es of Ireland). The tune is strongly associated with the fiddle playing of Donegal and is annotated in "the Northern Fiddler" an out of print classic which collects the tunes of well known fiddlers from that county.

The Jig (Irish: port) is a form of lively folk dance in compound meter, as well as the accompanying dance tune. It developed in 16th century England, and was quickly adopted on the Continent where it eventually became the final movement of the mature Baroque dance suite (the French gigue; Italian and Spanish giga). Today it is most associated with Irish dance music and Scottish country dance music. Jigs were originally in duple compound meter, (e.g., 12/8 time), but have been adapted to a variety of time signatures, by which they are often classified into groups, including light jigs, slip jigs, single jigs, double jigs, and treble jigs.

Although originally written for uilleann pipes, I created this arrangement for solo Piccolo.

Although 6/8 time, it is intrinsically complex. All of the 8th notes are duplet pairs. I removed the number designator from all but the first 2 measures in an effort to increase readability but, I may have created more confusion in the process. (Please note that each duplet pair represents a 3 count (dotted quarter note) of the total 6/8 time.
