Jig's Up!
Earle Parker, David Parker

Story

A great story about a somewhat dubious fishing (party) boat and the characters that were involved in it's many adventures on the  waters of the Avon River and Minus Basin.  It's another classic by my brother Earle.

Jig's Up!
David Parker, Mike Murley, Richard Underhill

Story

This silly song was written when the Shuffle Demons were playing at the Whitehorse Frostbite Festival.  Any reference to real people is of course a coincidence. 

Jig's Up!
David C. Parker

Story

A ballad written for my Uncle Claude Campbell at the time of his passing.  It picks up in the 6/8 section a little later on.

Jig's Up!
David C. Parker

Story

I was really into Irish music during this period and decided to write a jig.  I would have loved to be able to play it on the fiddle but had to settle for the penny whistle.  It became the theme song for Jig's Up! 

Jig's Up!

Story

Written as a homage to my parents and the community in Nova Scotia where they lived for a good deal of their lives.

Story

My brother Lee was quite a character as a young man.  This song tells the story of how he dealt with a Nova Scotia liquor store strike back in the 70's.

Jig's Up!

Story

This song tells the story (fictional) of a woman who comes down from the Cape Breton Highlands (or any other hills I suppose), and heads off to Newfoundland on a quest to find herself a man.  I can't remember when exactly I wrote this one...might explain the farcical nature of the tune!

Jig's Up!
David C. Parker

Story

A tribute to the wonders of grains, hops and water.  I also got to mention a couple of characters from my home town of Windsor, Nova Scotia in this one.  I heard that it was even the theme song for a woman's softball team somewhere in Ontario!  What better compliment could a songwriter have.

Jig's Up!
Earle Parker, David Parker

Story

This song was written by my brother Earle.  He was the first songwriter I'd ever met.  This song tells the ballad of Clyde, a rebel who hid out in the Rawdon Hills of Nova Scotia.  My only contribution to this song was in helping a little with the the music.

The Shuffle Demons
David Parker, Mike Murley, Richard Underhill

Story

This is the Shuffle Demon version.  We had a ton of fun breaking up our shows with this tune. I always insisted that the vocals start on beat 3 whereas the other guys hear it starting on beat 1.  It works either way... I guess.
