Tune of the Day: The Bridal Jig
Traditional Irish jig
The earliest appearance of this tune in print is in Ryan's Mammooth Collection, published in 1883. A variant of the same jig appears in O'Neill's Waifs and Strays of Gaelic melody (1922) under the title “Kennedy's Bridal Jig”, after Chicago Police Officer James Kennedy.
