Tune The Black Joak

This is an English jig. It's not the only tune by this name, and there are Joaks of other colours as well. I learnt this tune from Chris Wood and Gail Duff.

The word "Joak" itself might have a connection to "jig", but it has another meaning too. You can hear it on my album "Homunculus Mellitus".
