Tune of the Day: The Gaelic Club
Traditional Irish jig
This Irish jig is taken from Francis O'Neill's 1907 collection Dance Music of Ireland: 1001 Gems. It is the descendant of an older Scottish pipe jig called “The Glasgow Gaelic Club”, which was probably composed by the piper William Gunn (c. 1788–1867), who was for a while piper to the Glasgow Gaelic Club.
