The Fiddlers are pleased to present their next “featured tune” Da New Rigged Ship”. Da New Rigged Ship,a popular Shetland reel, is recorded at full tempo and at a slower learning tempo by Scottish Fiddlers Associate Director Chris Peoples.
Sheet music: https://thesession.org/t
Per the Fiddler’s Companion, “the tune celebrates the rigging out with new sails and mast of a fishing boat, which the owner proudly calls a ship”.
Da New Rigged Ship is often played before Da Full Rigged Ship in sessions. Da Full Rigged Ship was the previous Fiddlers featured tune. Recordings (slow and full tempo) and a link to the sheet music can be found here:
