Tune of the Day: The Bungalow Jig

Traditional Irish tune

This melody appears in the mid-19th century music manuscript collection of Church of Ireland cleric James Goodman. Goodman, who played the uilleann pipes, collected from tradition in Cork and elsewhere in Munster, and obtained tunes from manuscripts and printed sources as well. It is interesting, if somewhat baffling, that a word of Indian origins like “bungalow” would appear in mid-19th century rural Ireland; unfortunately, Goodman does not give a source for the melody, and it is unclear where it was obtained.
