Mike Richardson has written several contras for two-part slip jigs, which I find are most
easily danced with a waltz step. These dances CANNOT be done with regular reels or jigs.
My favorite of these is Another Jig Will Do, there is also Peacock Follows the Hen and at
least one other. My favorite tune for this is Snowy Path. I have also used The Butterfly,
adding a C part consisting of Star Left and Star Right, or a Star Left, Circle Left, or
some other position-neutral sequence.
