Compositions on the subject of 6/8

The 6/8 time signature is most commonly used within Jigs, however it can be found in Marches and even Airs.

This is one of the most identifiable time signatures within traditional Scottish and Irish music - if you’re not familiar with time signatures then it’s the time signature that makes people want to spin their partner in dances such as the ‘Strip the Willow’.
