Kemp's Jig

There are two English Renaissance tune which bear the name, Kemp's Jig. One is in common time and in a major key. This tune appears to be associated with a William Kemp who was one of the clowns in Shakespears acting company. He seems to have pulled a "publicity stunt" by dancing from one town to another. 

The other tune is found in "Playford's Dancing Master". This tune is in a 6/8 meter and a minor key.

It would be great to believe that I am related to William Kemp but I doubt it.

I enjoyed this project however and hope the you enjoy playing 'Kemp's Jig(s)'
