Tune of the Day: Trip to the Cottage

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest appearance of this tune is probably in a circa-1840 manuscript by Shropshire musician John Moore. It was later printed in Ryan's Mammoth Collection, which was published in 1883.

“Trip to the Cottage” is also the name of a ceili dance, a form of folk dancing quite popular in Northern Ireland.
