In cart Not available Out of stock

A traditional Métis jig includes both European (French, Scotch, and/or Irish) and Native influences; it’s up-tempo, lively, and made for dancing. The Métis (a term at times loosely, at others strictly defined; here it is used to describe those of Native—Canadian or American—and European descent who trace their roots to the Upper Midwest or Canada) commonly included extra and irregular beats in jigs to challenge the quickness of a dancer’s feet. "Red River Jig" is one of the most popular Métis fiddle tunes from the mid to late 1700’s.
