“ Between the Jigs and the Reels” – what’s in a name?!

“ Between the jigs and the reels” is an expression in Irish-English to mean “ between one thing and another”.
However and also importantly - in Irish traditional music a ‘jig’ and a ‘reel’ are two types of dances. A jig has three beats in a bar. A reel has four beats in a bar.

Irish culture tip no.1 – the first of many!
