Tune of the Day: The Shaugraun

Traditional Irish jig

This B-flat-major jig is taken from Harding's All-Round Collection of Jigs, Reels and Country Dances, published in New York in 1905. The word ‛shaugraun’ comes from the Irish seachránaí, meaning ‛wanderer’. The Shaughraun is also the title of a 1874 melodramatic play by Irish playwright Dion Boucicault.
