Wow Marc, The Picardy Third ! I read about it in Wikipedia :
"It refers to the use of a major chord of the tonic at the end of a musical section which is either modal or in a minor key. This is achieved by raising the third of the expected minor triad by a semitone to create a major triad, as a form of resolution."

... and still haven't got a clue what it means.

I have always liked Kansas Jig and that is nice playing.

Gonna tell you what i think is a reasonable explanation :

" picarde "  has today in French only one meaning  : from Picardy , which is a province of France like Burgundy is another ; went from Wiki _english and they say " The Picardy Third " , yes , i saw

this means nothing

But  in old French language ( may be 200 or 300 years ago ) "picarde " used to mean " piquante "_don 't know hhow you translate this in English but 1st meaning ; a needle is piquante and  so  2nd meaning the third is piquante ( picarde  ) _ was picarde ,  should  i say because  this harmony substitution was up to fashion 300years ago _ because your ear is waiting for a minor chord at the end of the minor tune and a major ' one , unexpected , come .

Marc, picante translates as "sharp".  Ian, it just means that the third note of the scale is raised a half step. The third note of the scale  is made sharp by one fret. The C minor chord (C, E flat, G) is made into a C major chord by raising the E by one half step. One fret higher. It's no big deal at all.  There's been a very good video of Kansas jig on this website since 2009.  2 banjos and bassoon. Lead banjo by Patricia Stefanelli.
