    Re: Instruction and music for the "Irish Washerwoman."

    Ian / Olga,
    
    There is music at
    
    http://www-leland.stanford.edu/~wrinnes/bagpipe.tex/samples/Washer.pdf and
    http://www.sheetmusicdigital.com/pdf/5/8/2/19000285.pdf and
    http://www.blackflute.com/music/tunes/jigs/irishww.html and
    http://www.fionasplace.net/Irishmusic.html and
    http://www.users.csbsju.edu/~eknuth/mandotab/washerxx.html
    
    Also instructions for the round-the-room version are at
    http://www.lloydshaw.org/Catalogue/cue%20sheets/Washerwoman.htm
    
    I have only heard of this dance as a "mixer dance" and not a "set dance".
