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". Alasdair Graham Dumbarton, Scotland. Looking for a dance? Call up http://ceilidh.members.beeb.net/ to see if something suits.
